if you would like to take over the server side GPO support project then
preliminary discussions with Wilco (author of s4's "libpolicy") or
Günther (author of "libgpo") could be extremely helpful. I think that
they share the most knowledge about GPOs in our developer staff. You can
write them emails or ping them on IRC (freenode, #samba-technical):
users "SYNNACK" and "gd". Of course you can direct questions also on
We will have yet to decide who the actual mentor will be in this case.
The login/logout counters project, however will be easier I think and
there Andrew Bartlett should be the right responsible (he maintains the
auth subsystems for both s3 and s4).
I hope these informations are of some help.
