Hi Jiri,

I've submitted a yast2-samba-client fix for bnc#869185 upstream, and
now plan to submit the fix for 11SP3 maintenance.

It appears that the normal process is to just tag a new release in the
changelog and then generate a corresponding tarball.

Is there a "blessed" way of doing this, or should I just use git, e.g.
git archive --format=tar --prefix=yast2-samba-client-2.17.28/ <commit> \

| bzip2 > yast2-samba-client-2.17.28.tar.bz2

Hi David,
the way I was doing it was:

- checkout SP3 branch of yast module from git
- generate tarball using 'make package-local' target (there might have been
some changes recently in this point, because rake is used now; but it should
not affect SP3 branch AFAIK)
- upload it to my IBS project and let it build for SP3 build target
- if build succedes, create submit request to appropriate Update:Test

In general, if you have any YaST related questions, you can ask on mailing
list (yast-devel) or public IRC channel (#yast).

Cheers, David
