There will almost certainly be an alpha17, because there were two key
features (samba-tool dbcheck and the psudobacklinks) that didn't make
the alpha16 release, plus of course normal development in the next few

We hope to get the next release out in 'a few weeks' once these features
are bedded down. 

After that, I need to sync up with Karolin about how and when to change
to 'pre' releases, and confirm with the rest of the team that we are
ready to bless the next major release as 4.0 (which will depend on the
progress of the integration work).
