This helps tremendously.
I think the concern that myself and others have is that while, the code is
available, a general roadmap is not, so many of us don't know where samba
is headed and are a concerned in that regard.

Regarding the technical issues:
are there plans to include samedit from tng as well?
is the imprints programs going to be the "consolidation of printer driver
mangement" portion?
Which LDAP version are you targeting (v2 or v3?)

Thanks for the answers they are very helpful.
