Yeah but we *all* feel like that :-). I remember for a while
being completely paranoid that all major decisions were being
made on IRC when I wasn't there, or that global decisions like
what source code control system to use were made deliberately
when I was on a plane and couldn't give input...... Thank goodness
that one was only a nightmare :-).

Yeah, thanks for that it's much appreciated !

Personally I also felt we were working better, and I also
think we're all making technical contributions. I think
tridge's plan is the correct way to do group mapping longer
term but I'm not going to argue about Jerry pulling it
at this stage for 3.0.25 (and yes I agreed with him on
this one). It needs to be working in "test" products
(like the winbindd rewrite that went on recently)
and really be beaten up more (it's tridge code, I
know it will pass :-) for 3.0.26.
