I'm Chris, and I'll be working on a console-based registry editor
for Samba. It'll be a general-purpose editor like Windows' regedit.
Samba's registry on the local machine can be accessed directly,
and remote registries can be accessed over the network (this
should include both remote Samba and Windows registries).
Samba already has code for accessing registries in a variety of
formats, so I imagine I'll spend most of my time working on the
UI. The ncurses library will be used to help build the UI, so the
editor should be portable to quite a variety of systems.

Should be a fun summer. Glad to be working for Samba!
