Hi all,

Samba 4.0.0rc6 is out now. It addresses a lot of (major) bug reports.

Thanks *A LOT* to Michael and especially Metze for working pretty hard on
the bugs and reviewing hundreds of patches!!! 

Hopefully, we can stick to the final release date on Tuesday.

There are some blockers left which need to be addressed:

- https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8969
  We need to check that the waf configure checks are complete and work as
  the autoconf ones

- https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9388
  Compatibility with newer versions of system heimdal

- https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9414
  'samba-tool user add' ignores password complexity settings  

Are there any volunteers?

It would be very good if as many people as possible would test rc6.
I know that the time frame is pretty small, but let's try to get it out
now! Andrew, is there a chance to run wintest again?

Let's see what happens in the next two days and then decide whether we can
ship the final release on Tuesday or not.
