Hi Saurabh,

Thanks for your interest in Samba !

The best way to start working on Samba for
a beginning programmer is to first get
familiar with building from source code.

Once you can make easy changes to debug
output and see those changes appearing
then I'd suggest going to bugzilla.samba.org
and typing in "easy" for the search terms.

This will get you this:


from which you can start to look at bugs
with the "easy" string inside them somewhere :-).

This one looks a good beginner task:


Looking forward to working with you !
