Yes, I guess that's true.

No problem, but I didn't mean it as hard as you might have read it,
maybe my English is not clear enough sometimes: I wanted to express that
I like the fact that FreeBSD ports are so close to the upstream
versions. Other systems tend to deliver heavily patched and outdated
versions. I certainly don't think that every untested bleeding edge
software should go into ports, but normally an official samba-release
fixes more problems than introducing new ones.

I know. I'm sorry if you got the impression I wouldn't appreciate your
work. I guess my English is just too clumsy to be precise enough
