Yes, that's certainly true.

This bit could be read a bit more strongly than I would have put it:

 >>The name is slightly misleading in that it implies that this
 >>particular code base will become the successor to the current Samba
 >>3.0.x releases.

I agree that a writer working on Samba documentation would not benefit
greatly from the Samba4 TPs at the moment, but I wanted to ensure that
nobody assumed the above statement meant that the Samba4 code will not
form the basis for a future release. 

How about that for a convoluted sentence! You can see why I'm not a
writer :-)

Cheers, Tridge
