Hi people.

I use centos on many my servers and they are running samba which comes 
with centos: samba-3.0.10-1.4E.9

 From samba-3.0.10 to 3.0.23c many thnigs in code had change. Many bug 
fixes etc., code rewrote (for example oplock in later version of samba 
than 3.0.10). RedHat people don't have made a full of backports to their 
samba, only security things.

So I have question, what do you think samba people, should i switch to 
the latest samba from sernet (for example) or still use samba, wchich 
comes with my centos. What are + and - ?

Best regards,
