We plan to avoid describing the domain login
functionality, save in a section which says
it will be out at about the same time as the
book, that outlines what is being added, and
refers the reader to the <samba>/docs tree.
If deadlines permit, if we're hit by a slip
or if the lack would be a significant flaw
in your opinion, we could do a longer section
with more meat to it, with a suggested
configuration and a troubleshooting sub-section.
The book isn't exactly ``Samba for dummies'', but
it is intended to be more introductory than
John D. Blair's work. Our aim is the harried
sysadmin who has to get Samba up are doing something
sane under time-pressures. Rather like the
dns & bind book.
