Hi, I take it that you are aware that samba-tng is a fork of samba and 
was forked back in 1999. It also appears to have gone nowhere since 
then, it has only got to version 0.5-rc1 ( this seems to have taken 13 
years). You also do not seem to be able to get the latest tarball from 
their site, also the last update on the site appears to be back in 
February 2013.

Do you really want to use code that doesn't seem to be readily available 
and for all intents & purposes appears to be dead ??
