Samba developers considering removing SWAT

The developers in the Samba Team are considering removing the SWAT
administration tool due to the series of security problems related to it.
"The issue isn't that we can't write secure code, but that writing
secure Web code where we can't trust the authenticated actions of our

Frankly it just isn't our area." Unless somebody steps up to
maintain this tool properly, it may well be on its way out.
