Is there any short developer's documentation of Samba.
This is complex piece of code, so without any main ideas/
architecural concepts/coding standards it's very hard
to read (with understanding) sources.
I know that complete developer's documentation means
couple of months of full-time work. I'm just asking about
serious interested in helping

If you will corrdinate with me, I'll put you to work :-)
Just tell me what you are interested in...

No. and I will apologize for this. No excuses. We all
work in a somewhat isolated workspace. Jeremy is in charge
of being the release manage for 2.2. Andrew in in charge of
HEAD. We corrdinate together which can make it make to pinpoint
a set of things that need to be outside of our head.
Talk to me (anyone) and we'll get something going. Coding,
documenting, testing, etc....

code == documentation == testing feedback == useful input :-)
No, don't go away. If you are interested in helping, let
