I'll help too -- I write computer books for a living and a Samba advocate, 
so I guess I'm kinda qualified <grin>...

Whoever's coordinating the project, let me know what you'd like me to do.

I'd also like to write an article for IBM's developerWorks on "what's 
coming" in Samba 3.0. Can anyone on the "inside" provide me the info I need 
to do so?
