When I just checked out Samba 4 I noticed a small error that's still
in WHATSNEW.txt, namely:

"SWAT provides easy provides access to our
setup and migration tools."

Here your using a double provides where one would do just fine. Just
FYI so it can be corrected for the next TP.

| developers to see how we have progressed, and to invite feedback and
| support.
| Please read the file WHATSNEW.txt in the tarball for more details.
