11:22 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: What's this thing with samba and talloc?
11:22 <@bonsaikitten> which thing?
11:23 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: Is there a reason a user would want to select between internal and external?
11:23 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: It's quite confusing to disable the use flags to see the thign still pulled in
11:27 <@bonsaikitten> ah, samba-libs
11:27 <@bonsaikitten> samba-libs can either provide it, or you can use the external libs
11:27 <@bonsaikitten> so e.g. samba-server can live without samba-libs
11:28 <@bonsaikitten> might be easier to make samba-libs unconditionally depend on the external ones though and kill the virtual carefully
11:28 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: Yes
11:28 <@bonsaikitten> I see the confusion now :)
11:28 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: That's my point.
11:28 <@Betelgeuse> bonsaikitten: If it'st the same code, just pick the external one.
11:29 <@bonsaikitten> yes
11:29 <@bonsaikitten> samba upstream is a bit confusing

virtual is unused now and can be removed (will do soon)
