Andrew, I'm in that thread on the Samba mailing list at
don't see an actual decision there, just a call for discussion. Also,
if you decide to remove the samba-swat package from the samba suite,
should it be obsoleted or merely reported as conflicting with new
samba-common releases, to make sure people delete it before doing
upgrades and getting in dependency trouble? It might even be better
pulled as part of the next Samba 4.0.4 package.
That's why I stated below that I will remove it when it gets removed in the
Samba development tree upstream.
I will handle the correct deinstallation of samba-swat when it gets removed
but thanks for the idea with handling it in samba-common.
I'm sure it will take some time till it gets removed.
And while you're in that package: I've got rewrite of the
and the other dependencies for RHEL compatibility of 4.0.3. It's up at
, along with RPM building
tools for all the other dependencies below:
iniparser # not in RHEL
krb5 # Version 1.10 in RHEL 6.4 is good enough
I've removed everything for older version on purpose to have a clean spec
file. We decided not to support RHEL6 with this.
