OK, now I must take you to task Andrew, I was confused, the Samba
history web page clearly says 'do not use' but debian seems to be using
the versions that have that epitath, so I said ( in a jocular way, there
is a laughing smiley at the end) 'OK, just who in Debian cannot read
???' if that upsets you, well sorry, but it was not meant in that tone.
A quick post to the Samba mailing explaining everything just after the
CVE release was all that was required, but it seems that you had to A)
confuse me and then B) get upset yourself by my jocular comment before
you released the info.
Again I apologise if I have upset you in any way, but before your posts
tonight, I was very confused by the fact that debian seemed to be using
versions it shouldn't.
