no problem, the most important thing to me is that we can find a 
solution that everyone is happy with.

Testing the interface is no problem. My problem, however, is fixing bugs 
or changing/adapting functionality. (See below)

I use the pdb_mysql module in an environment with about 100 clients and 
1.500 users. We have a self-written web interface, and Samba and the web 
interface are based on the pdb_mysql module.

However, I am no programmer, so I need your help.

I can test, debug and act as a contact person, however, I need someone 
supporting me as a developer, as I can't code a single line. :-)

Do you see any chance in this?

Looking forward to working with you!
