The purpose of the talk is to describe the effort pun into the project so far, ways we have approached the problem and how we plan to continue the work

We at Symas have been working on the reimplementation of the OpenLDAP backend for Samba for a few years now, Many lessons were learned along the way, and different approaches to the problem were tried with varying success. As of this year's SambaXP, a new approach was discussed with the Samba Team, that could lead to a faster finish and tighter integration with Samba - to attempt to integrate Samba's LDB stack inside OpenLDAP. We will discuss the possible advantages and disadvantages of the approach, and the technical challenges it presents.
