For your information, I was a significant tester of early Samba,
contributing many hours using a real sniffer to debug protocol issues.
contributed to documentation on numerous occasions. I haven't had time
contribute in the last year, but that doesn't change the reality of both
viewpoint - the reality which most of us on the list face. We don't make
this stuff up -- we have realtime, real-life deliverables.

When someone mentions and elaborates a real issue, telling them it
matter does nothing more than demonstrate your own ignorance. You aren't
God, you don't know everything. You've demonstrated quite clearly how
little you know, and how little project management experience you have.
Why don't you sit back and learn a little?
