Thanks for the offer.  Take a look at
http://us4.samba.org/samba/development.html and
see what looks interesting to you.  There's a todo list
linked at the bottom of the page as well as some 
development resources.

We try to coordinate efforts on this mailing list so 
we don't step on each other.  Once I get projects firmly
delved out to people, I'm considering posting who 
has claimed what in order to give a point of contact.  
We'll see. I haven't decided about that yet.  For now, 
just post quesitons, proposals, etc... to this list 
and we'll work on it.

Cheers, jerry
