The RedHat Samba binaries of Samba include ssl support. This is
a very bad idea. SSL support in Samba is an experimental option, and onlly
works with a very obscure client that implements a NFS/SMB gateway. There
are no generally used SSL enabled SMB clients or servers so enabling SSL
just causes Samba users to get nasty messages about certificates at
startup. No amount of certificate-foo will get them a SSL enabled SMB
connection to any Microsoft client or server.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. look in spec file
2. laugh at the fact that someone must have seen SSL and immediately
thought "hey that must be good"
Hey, I resemble that remark. :)
Will be fixed in the next build; 2.0.7-36 or so.
(make that -37)
