You could also send hardware/software/money/jewelry or pizza vouchers directly to me. The pizza vouchers would be especially welcome :-)
If you like a particular feature then look through the change-log and see who added it, then send them an email.
Remember that free software of this kind lives or dies by the response we get. If noone tells us they like it then we'll probably move onto something else.

To send mail to everyone on the list mail to email@example.com
There is also an announcement mailing list where I announce new versions. To subscribe send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a body of "subscribe samba-announce Your Name". All announcements also go to the samba list.
You might also like to look at the usenet news group comp.protocols.smb as it often contains lots of useful info and is frequented by lots of Samba users. The newsgroup was initially setup by people on the Samba mailing list. It is not, however, exclusive to Samba, it is a forum for discussing the SMB protocol (which Samba implements).
A Samba WWW site has been setup with lots of useful info. Connect to:
It is maintained by Paul Blackman (thanks Paul!). You can contact him at email@example.com.
