Samba and sernet samba are the same, exept the sernet samba provides pre-build packages you can use.
What i think about this.. still thinking..
I can underestand sernet is asking for there packages, because they also
have to pay for bandwith and servers etc.
I do think that some of the users here on the mailing list should get the sernet packages free, for the support they give, but thats up to sernet.
I stay a while longer on 4.2 and see what happens here, because this change will impact the support here i think.
I would be nice if sernet proficed the build packages, like for me the "debian" folder in the sources, this would save a lot of mailling list support. I do think pressure is now more on the mailling list with building problems.
But again we will see..
