sander's doing netlogon conversion, he's just gone to sleep.

elrond's doing lsarpc conversion, he doesn't like the msdn api format, but
then again, neither do any msdn developers like lsa_lookup_sids and

[elrond, would you be happy with a client-side "wrapper" function that
looks like rpc_client/cli_lsarpc.c's lsa_lookup_names?]

sean millichamp's first foray into programming for a while resulted in
srvsvc conversion, he even had fun doing it.

lars volunteered for srv_reg.c, and is having the same conceptual
difficulties with the task to be carried out that sean _used_ to have
before sander explained in a mini HOWTO (Thx sander)!

luke howard hates passdb/*.c and groupdb/*.c as much as i do.  he's not
touched the pre-existing schema so he's created an nt5ldap schema.  it all
works, but falls down silly in exactly the same way that the smbpsswd API
samrd does (i.e without --with-ldap).

luke also liked the surs thing so much he wrote a surs_nt5ldap_sid_to_uid
function - in 20 lines of code.  YESS :)

i'm also trying to get luke h. to write a samrnt5ldapd, but he coded
himself silly on the passdb/ groupbd/ version so needs a rest.  i'm also
encouraging him to "track" what i do for samtdbd, so he doesn't have to
waste effort.

i'm _trying_ to write samtdbd, but the rest of you are so busy in the
mornings (when i'm not even up) that i had 100 email messages when i
_started_ work and they just kept on coming...

anyway, i got usrmgr to actually display a user-dialog today.

i have two outstanding problems, one of which is how to make the user
passwords secure even though the database itself may be accessible
read-only (just like /etc/passwd is).  i have an idea, i'll post an rfc in
a separate message.

the other one is how to do a SamrQueryUserInfo() at level 0x18 on local
loopback but NOT on network access.

i not sure...
