I agree with you. Those comments are just nonsense.  I'm a long time Samba
user and it has been nothing short of just wonderful. Samba is the most
reliable SMB server that I have ever used and I have used many. One of my
Samba servers has been in continuous 24x7 use for over 13 months serving
over 500 users. That's why I use Samba.

you are talking complete crap

We run Samba under insure to catch memory leaks. If you know of a
memory leak then point it out rather than just sending such crap to
the mailing lists.

Kenichi, you continuously make annoying comments like this. When you
send patches that make sense and that we agree wiith then we will
integrate them. Instead you say things like "all development must stop
for 6 months" which is completely insane.

We have committed over 3000 changes so far this year. Thats over 20
per day. And you complain that we are slow??
