We already do alphabetic releases in my opinion. 3.0.15pre1 is not exactly 
numeric - is it? :-)

I am OK with your actions and plans per this email. If possible, we should 
avoid letter releases.

Prehaps at SambaXP we can discuss the following:

1. The release numbering process

2. Documentation versioning so as to tie in better with release numbering

3. How we can better educate our users regarding dependencies implicit in 
Samba. i.e.: LDAP schema, tdb file format, tool and utility changes, etc.
