After having worked with Samba for almost 20 years, I'm giving up now.
I have submitted patches upstream when Samba (and I :) ) was young,
I've proof-read books on Samba and NTLM but where they're going, I
can't follow them any more.
- Samba 4.1.0 doesn't even build for me any more and I'm too
frustrated to figure it out.
- In Samba 4.1.0, SWAT (the configuration web interface) seems to have
been removed. I might be missing something but if I'm not, that sucks.
- Samba's "new" crappy build system WAF is just horrible and I simply
don't understand it. I asked for help (and it was offered) but nothing
was ever done.
- New versions of Samba 4 try to build against already installed
versions in the live filesystem and I don't understand WAF enough to
I've just removed myself from BUGS_TO. If you want it, take it but if
you do, do me a favour and do a better job than me and make sure
you're weird enough to understand (and ideally like) WAF.
