I've been subscribed to samba-ntdom from an year now and
just subscribed to samba-technical to follow closer the
developent of TNG primarily.
I've much appreciated your work in TNG and think you
will be a miss if you decide to leave.
>From what I have seen you seem to person who know best
the DC protocols in samba.
As Samba is a collaborative project and you should take
encouragments and discoraugements on the same way a make
a ballance between the two.
If you think discouragments to win take in account that
discouragments may come from misunderstanding of the
problems your "ar-sighted understanding of what is
involved" instead see.
I think the best way you have to level this problems is
to write a clear paper of your knowings with a rodmap
and weel documented resons to any techincal decison
involved, and you shoud be open on discussion about
I think that with a clear concerted plan you may get
less discouragment and more neutral feedback.
This mail is not intended to offend anyone, if I have
done so please excuse me and my poor english.
I really hope you will not leave samba and TNG
