Dear Samba Maintainers,

there was some discussion about how to translate the second paragraph of the
package description (1). It says:

  ... and nss_wins, which provides hostname lookups via the WINS and NBNS

I would suggest to  s/WINS and NBNS protocols./WINS/NBNS service/  or 
equivalent, as WINS and NBNS are implementations of the same protocol (2),

   NetBIOS Name Service (NBNS)

   This service is often called WINS on Windows systems.

   The NetBIOS Name Service is part of the NetBIOS-over-TCP protocol 
suite, see
   the NetBIOS page for further information.

Kind regards,
