Hi all,

I really know you'll tell me it is not an issue from Samba nor a matter 
of topic in this list.

But. I have problems with oplocks, surely because of my version:
Version 2.2.3a-12 for Debian I noticed it all in bug 26128 and posted 
here precisions, few days ago.

Version 2.2.3a-12!!!??? YES, this is the *stable* version from Debian.

What would I do? Install newer version (2.2.7,afaik), then corrupt my 
system? Or wait for Samba team to put 2.2.7 in the stable?

For example, in current proposed-updates, samba version proposed is
2.2.3a-12!! I think I'll have to wait a year before 2.2.7 becomes 
stable, then you'll be supporting only version 2.4 ? :-)

I really know again it is *not* the problem of Samba team.

But, I think when I read docs "always install newest version before 
asking to support", you put to rubbish all users who havent yet 
connexion to internet, or ones who just buy brand new RH, Mandrake, 
Suse, whatever, box, with surely not the latest Samba version in  :-(

What are my solutions then? Build my own deb package from your cvs? 
Thats what I'm gonna do finally, corrupting a bit my stable production 
debian server :-/

I'd really like you give your point of view on this.

Thanks a lot for your efforts!
