Unfortunately, Samba 3.6.6 will be delayed. There is one blocker that needs to
be addressed (bug #8944: smbd doesn't start with ldapsam:trusted options).

The new planned release date is May 31, if there are no objections.
That means, the v3-6-test branch will be frozen on May 24 (in 3 days!).

Additionally, the 3.6.6 bug depends on four bugs that should be

-Bug 8373 - Can't join XP Pro workstations to 3.6.1 DC
-Bug 8598 - force user fails for active directory users
-Bug 8910 - resolve_ads() code can return zero addresses and miss valid DC
            IP addresses.
-Bug 8943 - Slow but responsive DC can lock up winbindd for > 10 minutes at a time
            (3.5 to master)

I am still not sure how to handle these release bugs. Currently, I handle
them as "should be fixed", but not as blockers. Can I ship a release when
there are four bugs listed in the release bug?

So we should aggree on how to handle these release bugs (or don't we need
them at all?).
