Well you bug us enough with patches and features until we
eventually break down, give you commit access and add you
to the team :-).

For new features and things you want in 3.6.x just send
patches to samba-technical. For bugfixes you need to get
into shipping (or about to ship) frozen trees like 3.5.x
then add a bug report and attach a patch.
