But I already have job completed. I've finished my polish
translation (and converted to DocBook) about month ago ! :)

Jerry keeps safe my work for 2.2.0, 2.2.1 and for current
CVS. So, it is, it exist and I'll try to send you the html
files tomorrow.
It's nice to hear what you said, 'cause it looks like my
work doesn't have to wait till 3.0 release.

Now, I intend to translate the HOWTO documents and, possibly
the rest of the docs/ stuff.
I've been thinking also about writing something like
"Samba User's-, Administrator's-, and Developer's guide"
since we really need better documentation (that was always
Samba's disadvantage). However I'm still too stupid to write
the last one (the most interesting for me) because while
studying the code and captured packets many, many questions
arise... :-(
