hi all,

Here is the situation.  We are currently upgrading our infrastructure to
use LDAP as our authentication mechanism and I intend to also have
Samba look at LDAP.  I had this working in a test case using 2.2 as a
PDC awhile ago.

Should I be using 3.0 or 2.2 for this implementation?  I realize that 3.0
is still quite alpha-quailty, but I've also read one or two interview
with the developers stating that 3.0 is actually more stable than 2.2
at this point and that they recommend using it.

My main concern is that the LDAP schema will change again before the
final 3.0 release - this is also what is making me wary of using 2.2,
since the schemas are pretty different should we want to upgrade to 3.x
in the future.

Any advice is much appreciated.
