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.
And while you're in that package: I've got rewrite of the .spec file
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 plan to remove the samba-swat subpackage in Fedora 18, 19 and rawhide as
soon as it gets removed from the current Samba development tree.
