I expected this list to be shut down along time ago (around 2.x).  I'm on 
the Samba list digested and this one as a non-digest.  This list used to 
have a better signal-to-noise ratio,  but recently it's all become old hat 
questions (Does it support WinY2k,  How to a set it up, etc...)  From what 
I see there is no point in to seperate lists anymore,  we are no longer 
using stuff everyone else doesn't dare touch.

I support this decision.

To the whole Samba team: Excellent work,  you guys have made being a 
net-admin a tolerable profession. :)  All you guys are awesome.
