Planning to drop deprecated samba releases in Gentoo

Currently, the releases 3.0 , 3.2, 3.4 and 3.5 of samba are available in Gentoo, but upstream has discontinued releases 3.0 and 3.2 for a while, and currently they are actively maintaining 3.4 and 3.5 .
For the above reason and in order to avoid security issues, I’m planning to drop releases 3.0 and 3.2 from the tree soon, but I’m interested in to know why you, fellow users, are using those old releases. Haven’t you updated your system? Perhaps something is not working right for you with currently stable samba 3.4?
Let me know your thoughts

lxmusic in portage

I have just made the initial commit of media-sound/lxmusic , one of the few relatives of the lxde family still missing in Gentoo land.

For everyone who doesn’t know, lxmusic is a very simple frontend for the (in)famous xmms2 which was also recently added into the tree thanks to the effort of many people.

For everyone merging lxmusic who doesn’t want to build dev-libs/boost as a dependency (myself included), make sure to set the -cxx use flag in media-sound/xmms2.
