Hi guys,

Sorry to get into this as a non-team member.
Why not we use some existing solution like github? It's much more ready, 
integrated, modern and user friendly in all kinds of way, most of the 
modern open source project has picked github, including Linus.
They have
1) issue system, and can label different version on issue.
2) pull request system that can easily reject, queue, merge.
3) release system
4) nice web interface.
5) http://hub.github.com/ for command line only
6) easy to track all forks
7) nice stats

What I'm trying to say is I don't think samba team should invest so much 
time while there are ready/better solutions, and need keep all solutions 
updated. I think a dev team should focus on project itself rather than 
dev solutions. (not talking about policy, review kind of things can also 
be done easily).
