Hi Charles.  Sounds like a good idea if we can figure out what format to
store all the information in.  If it's developer documentation, there is
a start to a Developer's Guide in the samba-docs repository but I'm not
sure how recently it was updated.  Tridge has written a document called
prog-guide.txt in Samba 4 which might be good to take a look at.
