This mailing list is for discussion of matters of general interest to
developers, which a bug in Samba normally is not, in my experience; and
maintainers of individual packages are not guaranteed to be subscribed
to debian-devel.  For best signal-to-noise results, please address such

you're not sure you've found a bug, to

Looking for the name WORKGROUP<1b> is not a bug; this is the NetBIOS

"WORKGROUP".  If you are getting this log message when you expect a DMB

I would need more information to know for sure.
