Hmmmm. Yes, it could take traffic away from the users list.

And here is where I see a problem. The samba "support infrastructure"
tends to tell users "Use a current version". Same goes (kind of) for
postfix. And: Both mailing lists are *really* high traffic.

I don't know about Xen or bind ...

So: Do we really want to do that? Or do we get more questions like "My
samba-3.30.40 doesn't work. And the samba guys told me to use that."?
