Description Nigel Metheringham 2000-06-30 10:17:51 EDT
Samba 2.0.7 package has 2 copies of the using samba book included
within it - making it huge (rpm is >4M as opposed to old 1.6M).

Suggest ideally losing (at least) one copy.
Preferred means would be to:-
  - remove the "Using Samba" book in /usr/doc into
    its own package samba-docs or samba-book
  - also move swat into a separate package

This would make a slimmer installation for those making servers
considerably easier.
