If only. But, no. This is not Samba Team policy to do beta and RC releases before they ship a stable update. Indeed, their one and only release manager just cannot afford that. > > Given the very low history of regression in Samba 3.6.* release cycle, > > I think it's a low-risk exception. > > > > One of the main issues would be the size of the diff we need to review, > hence the suggestion above! The size of the diff would be the same. The only difference being that what I would upload right now (if an RC release existed) would *not* be reviewed. Frankly speaking....I would call that just "cheating"..:-). I just prefer being honest and ask honestly for a freeze exception, in advance, for what I think will be very low risk.
