Re: Cutoff for major changes to 3.0.26 is scheduled for Monday, June 4

I have two small sets of patches to go in. One is the tiny patch to
enable disabling of ADS. The other is a patch to re-enable ldb for
group mapping. The ldb patch should also be quite small, as it doesn't
need any updates to the ldb code in the samba3 tree, as Samba3 doesn't
need any of the newer features.

I should get these in by the 4th, but it will be close, as I want to
spend at least a day re-testing the ldb change.

I also plan on making the ldb change configurable. I know we discussed
this previously and thought it wasn't necessary, but I think that
there should be some way of disabling major code path changes like
this. I'd propose that we document the option as one that is expected
to go away in future releases. I hope that's OK.

I also wonder if we should consider using a 'precious' minor release
number at some point? For example, once we consider the clustering
code in Samba3 to be production ready, perhaps it should be called
3.1.0 not 3.0.XX ? :-)

Cheers, Tridge

I have
	- setgroups fixes for Darwin and BSD
	- fix the smbd idle timeout for new event

I'll try to get these in before the deadline.

I'd like to clear some of my patch backlog for 3.0.26, but not sure if  
I'll have time. If you wanted to push 3.0.26 out by a couple of weeks,  
that would be nice, but if not, I can live with it.

I am using smbtorture instead of NBENCH.
Following is my way to use smbtorture. But I'm not sure this way is 
correct or not.

$ tar xfz samba-3.0.24.tar.gz
$ cd samba-3.0.24/source
$ ./configure
$ make all
$ make smbtorture
You can get the "smbtorture" binary in source/bin directory.

Please copy the "smbtorture" binary to Linux client machine.

Rather than using talloc_steal() here :

(*names)[*num_names] = talloc_steal(names, names_nocache[i]);

please talloc_move() instead, as that's what you're
actually doing.

It should look like :

(*names)[*num_names] = talloc_move(tmp_ctx, &names_nocache[i]);

as you should no longer be accessing names_nocache[i] after
the move.

Yes it should at the moment. It should be calling
_talloc_array_zeronull() under the covers in lib/util.c
which explicitly does this.

Was this not happening for you ? I'd like you to
debug that as I can't see a codepath for this not
to happen.

OpenChange MAPI Library 0.4 (WARP) released

Hi List,

1. MAPI Library 0.4 WARP Release

A new release of the MAPI library is now available for download. This
release fixes limitations from previous release (libmapi-0.2 MAILOOK)
and add a set of new features:

- sending emails to external recipients is now possible. We can now
send emails both to internal users and external ones. For external
users, the email will go through MAPI to SMTP and a winmail.dat file
is automatically appended to external emails copy.

- fetch/create appointments events in the default calendar folder
- fetch/create contacts in the default contact folder
- fetch/create tasks in the default task folder

- experimental exchange notification system. So far we can bind a
local udp port to receive Exchange notifications, subscribe and
unsubscribe folders to receive newmail and objectcreated
notifications, generates traffic to receive MAPI notifications and
decode them.

OpenChange tools have been improved:
* openchangeclient can:
        - send/fetch/delete emails
        - store attachments on the filesystem
        - fetch/send Appointment, Contact, Task, Note items
        - display the mailbox folder hierarchy
