The Samba team has announced
the signing of an agreement with Microsoft which will result in the delivery of Microsoft's protocol documentation. "We will be able to use the information obtained to continue to develop Samba and create more Free Software. We are hoping to get back to the productive relationship we had with Microsoft during the early 1990's when we shared information about these protocols. The agreement also clarifies the exact patent numbers concerned so there is no possibility of misunderstandings around this issue.
