For those of you who don't read the 3000 NewsWire Blog (shame on you)
here is an extract from today's post:

"At the Technology Forum, Bandle also announced that a Samba porting
paper will be released to the community during 2007. HP will release the
paper, which includes general information that will help port other open
source solutions, within this calendar year."

Only a maximum of 15 weeks and 4 days to wait .

on 6.5 or higher. I have tried to contact Joseph Koshy who did the 1.5.1
port, to get some details of the effort required, but he no longer works
