Well, the only thing we actually removed was the HOWTO pages in the
wiki, but yes, this is no longer a goal and will be removed from the
release notes and announcement for the next release.

But regardless of this, I'm very grateful to Jelmer for getting another
Samba4 release made.  We are making great progress, and it's important
that our users be able to get Samba4 from tarballs as well as just the
GIT tree.
