Go to http://pserver.samba.org and download current SAMBA_2_2 CVS.  If
you generate patches against that then you have a good chance of getting
them applied.  

Don't worry too much about being a 'newbie', as while it's easy to check
a patch, a vauge 'this is wrong, that needs work' takes time and effort

(Then again, sombody like Jerry might pick that stuff up anyway).
