There was actually a document (possibly on the Samba site) by someone like Andrew Tridgell or
Jeremy Allison that set out this kind of stuff, but last I checked (it'd be months now), it was
a little out of date. There's also a fair number of people working on a fair number of things
(a lot of it undocumented ;-)), so it would probably be hard to compile a document that
contained the status and direction of everything.

They do spend an awful lot of time posting messages to these lists. Perhaps the Samba Kernel
Cousins would be a good source of info for this kind of thing. They generally go quite in depth
into the important stuff.

Same. I am not really much of a developer, but when time permits, I try to help with
documentation. As with us all, I don't have a great deal of time (stupid full-time jobs ;-)).
