Well, it will come in a short time i think. I just wait for some feedback
about the cvs version: i added a new object called cn=sambaUnixIdPool that
has the sambaUnixIdPool objectclass. This object allow to store the next
uidNumber and gidNumber available when adding a new user or a new group.
This is usefull for directory with large number of users. I am not sure
that cn=sambaUnixIdPool is the best name for this, and i am wondering if
this objectclass was initially made for this purpose (if i must remove that
later because this objectclass is made for something else, i prefer to know
that as soon as possible)
Any comment is welcome ;-)

This is present in the cvs version of the smbldap-tools documentation. I
was waiting for the next release to publish the cvs version as the
documentation explain options that are not present in the 0.8.4 release.
btw, i've updated the Samba-ldap Howto for use with samba3. It is
essentially an update, and there are still some TODO in the documentation.
A draft is available here : http://samba.idealx.org/smbldap-howto.fr.html

so the Howto is reduced to 2 lines :)

Well, all contributions of the scripts and the documentations are always
welcome !
