testers cannot connect to our campus-wide Samba-based file servers.

Additional info:

The Samba crew released a patch to 3.0.21 and current CVS/SVN.  Is there any way
such a patch could be rolled into Red Hat's RPM of Samba?
Comment 1 Ryan Woodsmall 2006-04-28 12:25:55 EDT
Supposed to be samba-3.0.9-1.3E.7.  Sorry!
Comment 2 Jay Fenlason 2006-05-01 14:53:21 EDT
To get a patch backported the request has to go through support, so call up 
your support person and get them to open a ticket.  Then have them attach this 
bug to the ticket.

Has there been any movement on this? Does anyone know if RedHat intends to backport this patch?
