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!
