Parent article: Releasing Samba 4
I've long wanted a lean stand-alone CIFS-file server to run on my 16 MB RAM Router, without the whole baggage that comes with AD, DC, Printing Server, DNS replacement and all the other Windows-technology that I'm not even aware of. Trying to tone smbd down through config.h enough to fit into this kind of restriced space has become an exercise in futility. I haven't heard of ntvfs yet, but that seems to be what I want instead. As such I would very much deplore if it was assimilated into a big monolithic samba4 monster with features that may be necessary if you want to run a enterprise class AD server but that I don't need for my use case.
