Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 11:29:36 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package net-fs/samba-3.5.15, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * The default value of 'wide links' has been changed to 'no' in samba 3.5
 * to avoid an insecure default configuration
 * ('wide links = yes' and 'unix extensions = yes'). For more details,
 * please see .
 * An EXPERIMENTAL implementation of the SMB2 protocol has been added.
 * SMB2 can be enabled by setting 'max protocol = smb2'. SMB2 is a new 
 * implementation of the SMB protocol used by Windows Vista and higher
 * For further information make sure to read the release notes at
 * and 

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is upgraded from an old enough package (and possibly for new installs).
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if has_version '<net-fs/samba-1.0'; then

Or, if the message should also be displayed for new installs:

if !has_version 'net-fs/samba' || has_version '<net-fs/samba-1.0'; then

Remember to replace 1.0 with the right version number.
