Regardless of what is going on this is not right in my opinion.
"So we're going to ban Luke from posting to the Samba Lists for three months"

There must be another way to work things out.

Subject: [Samba] Participation on Samba lists

Luke Leighton (lkcl) has brought up his arguments about control of Samba before. In October 2000 they resulted in the creation of a new Samba code branch, samba-tng, which Luke and others who agreed with his direction were free to do with as they will.

Samba-tng still exists, and we in the Samba Team still wish it well, but what we can't continue to put up with is Luke still rehashing the same advocacy that resulted in the creation of samba-tng on the Samba mailing lists. We had that discussion many times, we know where it leads.

So we're going to ban Luke from posting to the Samba Lists for three months, in the hope that he will re-focus his efforts on the project he created, and not re-hash old arguments.

The Samba Team is proud of the open way we develop the Samba code base. Since the inception of the project in 1991 we have had a policy of open discussion among developers, users and other interested parties. We encourage anyone who wants to examine our commitment to openness to examine the public mailing list archives themselves. If anyone wants to examine the truth of what Luke says we also encourage people to look at the public record of all source code commits to Samba

We all have far too many bugs to fix and technical decisions
to make to continue these distracting discussions on the main lists. Hope everyone understands,


        The Samba Team.
