Anyone with wiki access is free to fix this, otherwise I'll get to it early next week.

You are reading more into my wording here than I indented.  All Samba
4.0 alpha releases are a preview of the final 4.0 release, but I do
believe we are getting closer.  

The team will announce the time-line and process for an actual 4.0
release in due time, presumably with pre and rc releases like 3.6 has
had.  In the meantime our Samba4 production users and dependent projects
benefit from alpha releases, which is why this was made.
