yep all texts files are outdated.

Currently under CVS, the HEAD branch (the one you checkout without any -r
option) contains samba 2.0.6 and will be used as the base for the next
MAJOR samba release (don't ask yet for dates or features)
the SAMBA_2_0 branch contains samba 2.0.6 and will be used for the next
MINOR versions (2.0.7 and so on) and will disappear when the next MAJOR
version will be officially released.

In the mean time we also have the SAMBA_TNG branch which contains all the
new prototype stuff that will be included in the next MAJOR version.

hope it clarify a bit.
