It is all and good telling us to move to 2.1.X, but it is no good unless
2.1.X is released and usable. I use 2.0.X as PDC for the moment because
it is stable and there is no 2.1.X too speak of (no CVS doesn't cut it on
production servers)

Sorryu for my useless rant. I would just like it if 2.1.X could finally
get out of the door, since 2.0.X really sucks as a PDC. Keep up the good
work samba team.
