Comment 1 Jelmer Vernooij 2005-09-23 11:18:01 UTC
The experimental pdb modules (pdb_mysql, pdb_pgsql and pdb_xml) have 
been a bit neglected during the last few releases of Samba 3 as they 
haven't been actively maintained. I was the original author and 
maintainer, but I no longer work on Samba 3 and I no longer use any of 
the modules in production. I was hoping I could nonetheless keep the code 
working for those that still use it, but this turned out to be harder then I 
I'll remove these modules unless somebody steps up as a maintainer. If 
there's anyone willing to take over maintainance of either one of 
these modules, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll put the modules up 
on my samba.org homepage as a separate tarball for those interested 
(including some of the patches that have been published).

See bug 3375.  If someone wants to maintain these modules outside
the Samba source tree, that is fine.  But the source has been removed
from the upcoming 3.0.22 release.
