I've looked over the changes between master and 3.6, and in particular
the diffstat, and I wonder if we should just do that merge again.  

It seems that (in the past two weeks since the re-merge) every change
that has been made intentionally for source3 is identical in v3-6-test
and master, and those changes that have missed out don't seem to have
intentionally done so.  

My question to the list is: What's the best way to handle this?  Move
the remaining patches that touch common code or source3/ by hand, or
should we just do a new merge?  I take it 3.6 will only truly diverge
once we have to bugzilla all the changes?

Not that I'm complaining, as I've been able to get in the security
default changes, but it seems we have (perhaps helped by the stability
that autobuild has given us) moved towards a 'release from master'
