Hi Hezekiah, it's great to (virtually) meet you !

As you may or may not know, Samba is an *old* Open Source
Project - I think we pre-date the Linux kernel (or at least
we hail from around the same time period at least :-).

Like Linux, some of the early committers are still around
and (hopefully :-) still friendly to new engineers !

Feel free to ask any questions you might have. If we
don't know (or can't remember more like :-) we'll do
our best to help you fit in with us.

Thanks very much for helping us with Samba !
