The possibility of such a foundation to support and
promote the Samba community has been discussed and
considered in the past.  I should point out however,
that by his own choice Luke Leighton is no longer an
active participant in the Samba development community.

Luke and others have created a fork, which is known as
Samba-TNG (http://www.samba-tng.org), of the Samba code
in October, 2000.  Our stance has always been supportive
of Luke and the Samba-TNG developers.  See


However, given that Luke is no longer a developer
on Samba, it is off-topic for him to propose a
organizational change to a OSS project with which
he is no longer associated.

cheers, jerry
