Dear all,

As you may know, webdav support is quiet poor on Windows, compared to Samba.
That is why I would like the samba server to act as a proxy to webdav
servers. This would give windows users the ability to browse webdav
pseudo-shares and map them to a drive letter, without buying software like

I am setting up a quick and dirty "proof of concept" software, plugging samba
(server) and davfs (webdav client) together, and it seems to work fine.

My questions are :

- Would anybody like to take the lead of such a project ?

Thank you for your attention.
