Give it a rest.

Different projects have different policies and people.  To uphold FreeBSD
as the epitome of development is naive, and does nothing to help
Samba.  You've made your point already -- dragging this out into a debate
serves no purpose.

Every project has a privileged branch; it's all a matter of time as to
when the keystrokes convert into a distribution.  Even the FreeBSD people
have to use editors and save files locally; I imagine that many may even
work on some functionallity over a long period of time without committing. 

The wheel is turning but the hamster is dead.
