I work on a project that is providing OCI container images, example 
deployments and documentation.


We have images for (member) file server, AD DC, client, and just recently added 
a "toolbox" image for testing and diagnostics.

Please don't let the 'kubernetes' in the org name scare you off the project in 
question is not K8S specific.  I'd love more feedback and eyes on our project. 
We've presented some of this work at sambaXP in the past two years FWIW.
