------- Comment #33 from jlayton at samba.org  2010-03-19 08:43 CST -------
The concensus so far is to not treat this as a security issue, which means that
we are not going to apply these fixes to v3.3. So this means:

v3.0 - discontinued branch. Doesn't get patches.
v3.2 - discontinued branch. Doesn't get patches.
v3.3 - security fixes only. Doesn't get patches.
v3.4 - patches applied to test branch
v3.5 - patches applied
master - mount.cifs has been removed altogether, it's now in the cifs-utils

With that, I'm closing this bug as FIXED. If distro maintainers or others
decide that they need to apply these patches to their packages or for their own
users, then I have them backported in the tarball that I attached in comment
