Metze can tell you more, but the usual procedure is to first try to
develop a client side test suite for all of the functionality that is
needed, then develop the server side code. The test suite should be as
standalone as possible, so it should join itself to the domain if
needed, and remove itself afterwards.

I suspect your main point of contact will be Metze, as he has spent so
much time in this area and has already written a fair bit of test
code, and worked out a lot of the structures. Please do join in on the
#samba-technical IRC channel as well though.

Cheers, Tridge
