I love that releases are moving very quickly now. My only concern is keeping up with and determining what is appropriate as I continue to maintain AIX binaries on my web page.

Presently I have already dropped the 3.0 series and have 3.2.4 available with the clustering option for AIX 5.3 and 6.1.

I am trying to determine how best to support a 3.2 and 3.3 parallel set or if I should just drop 3.2 after 3.3.1 is released or some other arbitrary schedule. :-) :-) 

How long after 3.3 is released to production does the Samba team anticipate supporting the 3.2 line?

Much appreciation and thanks to all on the Team!
