How do you plan to 'integrate' this?  Remember, Samba4 creates a new
directory tree from scratch (rather than Samba3's ability to easily
'attach' to another directory).

The Fedora DS backend has become un-maintained, as has the wiki page.
While it is the aim to have this working again at some point, more
effort (particularly by some very helpful external contributors) has
gone into the OpenLDAP backend at this time.
