Thanks Jelmer,

	I think the next step would be for the people maintaining
the pdb_mysql and pdb_pgsql to work out what patches are needed,
and then send them one at a time to the samba-technical lists, as
well as attach them to the bugzilla entries of the bugs they're

I (and Jerry I'm sure) will merge them as the maintainers agree
that these patches are "blessed" and we'll get them into the
main trees as soon as the above people agree.

Remember you need to maintain both the SAMBA_3_0 tree and
the HEAD svn trees - the SAMBA_3_0 tree becomes the next
release, HEAD is where more "speculative" development takes
