Hey folks,

Here's a short summary of what's in the works
for 3.0.21.  Right now we have people working
on all of these bullets.  If you want to get
involved, join the samba-technical list and
help out with code reviews, testing, etc...

Or if you have patches and or new features
that you would like to submit for inclusion in
this release, the technical list is the best
place to start.

cheers, jerry
