please could you not post discussion of samba issues on the
tng mailing lists, _especially_ in areas where work already
done is being duplicated and has already been done.

the tng mailing lists are for _future and current_ development
and discussion of TNG.

it is extremely distressing for me to have to watch - as has
been proven time and time and time again - history repeating
itself as it has done so many times, over nmbd multiworkgroup
and wins server issues dating back to 1996, over nt domain
issues for the last four years.

specifically, it is extremely distressing because of the amount
of time and money that could have been saved by those people
funding the samba project by making use of my work, especially
given that my financial position is so restrictive that i am
having to work on a building site in order to make ends meet.

so please if you have any specific questions or areas of work
that need to be done, please find someone to pay me to do the
work or to answer the questions, as this will lessen the burden
on me and will also get you your answers very quickly.

until that occurs, please ensure that the issues you wish to
discuss on tng mailing lists are related to _future_ development
and _current_ discussion _of_ tng and tng only, rather than
searching in the past of tng's development for information
that will get you "up to speed" with TNG's static, unchanging
and under-funded status, some time over the next two years.

nothing personal, i just can't take these reminders for very
much longer.
