Are you essentially want to test TNG ? 
Head/2.2 branch might need testing. 
Especially 2.2, because official launch is getting progresively closer ...

Hi Everyone, 
I would just like to say that I am more than willing to provide a 
for TNG to be tested in. Despite my age (16 years old) I think I have 
to offer as a tester, including a non critical environment in which to 
it and a variety of hardware / software. 
Hope this will help, 
Phil Quinney

I'd also like to be considered for some testing. I've got a nice 
heterogenous environment here at work. 
I've made some headway with deploying samba-tng throughout the company 
with some functionality. 
It'd be nice to get a crack at full functionality.
