The only active branches are 1.9.18 and 1.9.19 (ie. there
is no 2.0 yet).

1.9.18 is nearly dead (ie. it should be in maintanence
mode, I'm only adding the occasional bugfix to it now).

To pull 1.9.18 do

cvs co -r BRANCH_1_9_18 samba

and then to keep it up to date do :

cvs update -d -P

To pull 1.9.19 do:

cvs co samba

and then to keep it up to date use 

cvs update -d -P


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
