You may not have noticed, but in the AD server, the stabilisation phase
started started a number of months ago.  Essentially it started with
beta2, when we turned on s3fs.  Since then I've focused myself almost
entirely on fixing bugs and writing tests, mostly related to the
ACL/idmap interactions to support GPOs on smbd.
