He's already on it :-)

This really boils down to a communication problem.  Developers
are expected to subscribe to both the samba-cvs and the samba-technical
lists.  The samba-pdbsql alias is really only intended for use in
bugzilla (default owner of pdb_sql component).

In a perfect world, everyone would know what's going on in
every aspect of the code tree.  But that's doesn't scale very well.
It's a big code base.  The only realy way to deal with this is to
eat our own dogfood.  A simple small test server running the
SAMBA_3_0 tree (updated every few days or so).  That way, when
something in the pdb*sql modules break, whether intentionally or
not, you will know immediately.

Filip, you and I should stay in closer contact.  I'll try to
remember to ping you when there is any relevant developments that
I think you should be aware of.

cheers, jerry
