Rowland, a word of advice. Attitudes like that don't
help on the lists, really they don't. If you don't
like winbind and prefer sssd, then fine, I'm glad
that works for you.

But turning up on the Samba lists and repeatedly
complaining about a component you're not using
isn't positive for anyone.

Imagine if someone turned up on the sssd lists
and started complaining and suggesting winbind
as a solution. That would be just as inappropriate
(I'm assuming no one *is* actually doing that
of course :-).

You're being "that" guy. Don't be "that" guy :-).
