Sorry if I sounded rude, that wasn't my intention at all.
I can code a little bit but I'm by no means a developer and I have a lot of respect for all the work you do.

My comment about roadmap was refering to this info on Samba Wiki:
"The Samba team decided not to peruse this as a development avenue, and no viable approach to re-opening this functionality has been proposed."


I understand that AD break standard schemas so LDAPv3 can't be used as backend. I'm just surprised that with so many people asking for some kind of LDAP attribute synchronization there's no work being done internally.
But you're totally right, I don't know how do you work of prioritize issues.
I just hope some company/institution decides to patron and fund this feature (Uninvention?).

With all that said, I'm totally ok sharing my solutions, so anyone that wants to maintain a standard LDAP in parallel to samba can contact me and I will happily give a hand.

Best regards,
