G'Day David,

Just a note that this got merged as
bdb90ec974b31a6430a2f2329364b01d6f7270c6 but got credited to samba-

This is because due to DMARC/DKIM etc, all mail through this list is
rewritten to be 'from' the list. 

Be sure to attach patches as files to avoid this, rather than using git
send-email.  (Or create a merge request, as you did, and point to that
if need be).
