I don't understand...
I know SAMBA or any derived work can not be released under LGPL. I seem
to recall a thread a few months ago where this was discussed and none of
the library routines would be released under LGPL.
And I downloaded your package and read the COPYING and that is the GPL.
So what is this all about?
