are always best referring these types of issues to your Apple Rep.  Apple
seem to take FOSS software, squirrel it away in their lair, do what ever
they want to it and then ages later say to the team that maintains it;
"Here, look at what we've done to your code.  Aren't we clever! We've
basically forked your code! Yay!"  There doesn't seem to be any
communication between Apple dev teams and the original FOSS teams.

AFAIR, Apple have been promising machines (refurbed I believe) for months to
the Samba team.  They still haven't gotten them.  I haven't ever seen an
Apple rep on this list.......  

Oh, by the way I do like Macs.  I'm working on one now.......at home.

Just a view from the sidelines....
