  we seem to have an interesting problem here, Andrew Bartlett has 
created a Samba bug report: Bug 9415 - SWAT *.msg files not installed 
with waf
This by itself is not a problem, but it is also listed as a blocker on 
Bug 8622 - Samba 4.0 can't be released

So what is the problem? the problem is that Samba 4 cannot be released 
until bug 9415 is sorted out, but why bother because Swat itself is so 
broken and out of date it cannot be installed. It relys on pylons, but 
pylons seem to have been replaced by pyramids.

So Andrew you want a cure for bug 9415, easy, just remove Swat until it 
is sorted out and works.

Before anybody starts shouting, I have tried to follow the instructions 
at https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/SWAT2
None of the instructions there seem to work on Ubuntu 12.04 server and 
the page was last modified on 7 September 2011. I have also tried 
searching the web for newer instructions but cannot find any at this time.

If anybody knows how to get Swat working, could they please post a howto 

Just my 1pence worth
