Does Samba have anything in the way of a debian-style online bugtracking
system?  We need all individuals who commit patches that intentionally break
certain areas of functionality(-P) to submit them as serious bugs.  This way
things aren't forgotten, and we know, objectively, when to release.

Thanks, Richard.
