Perhaps you should also post this to the samba list?  There are more
and more people asking about samba4 on the samba list instead of

Also, it seems questions about samba4 on the samba list are less
likely to get answered than they are here.  Should all samba4
questions be redirected to samba-technical until further notice?  Or
should more samba4 developers be encouraged to look for messages on
the samba list with "samba4", "s4", "samba 4" etc. in the subject? :)
