The release manager decides which applications to use for release

In the meantime, though, we could add this to the list of applications
that are recommended for use in testing GCC; see the list at  Everything in that list has a build and
test guide available that explains how to configure, build, and test
the application.  Those things might seem simple to anyone who's
already done it at least once, but these guides let other people get
set up very quickly.  If you'd like help setting up a build and test
guide for Samba, let me know.
