Debian hasn't been frozen yet, so we still have a chance to get 3.6.6
in. And, anyway, I hope I can be convincing enough wrt our release
team (we have *two* former Debian release managers in the Samba
packaging team, so we have arguments..;:-)) to get 3.6.6 in wheezy
even after the freeze. Having something release before end of June
would make it possible, I think. If the release is in July, it's less
sure as I'm suspecting our release managers want to freeze more or
less at the start of the yearly Debian conference that begins on July
