AH! Good to know that, though I can't say it gives me a "warm fuzzy
feeling" on how to know *when* it's necessary... ;-) I can comment out
that line on my "install me" script for now.
Are there any behavioral clues as to when I might need to run the
upgradeprovision, in case I miss the email saying, "Oh, don't forget to do
the upgrade when you pull this git version"? What typically breaks, or is
that impossible to predict? Would you expect restarting Samba to either
fail or give some sort of notification in the log saying it has encountered
an incompatible schema or database version?
(Ah the joys of living on the git-y edge...)
