The Samba Team
The Samba Team is a loose-knit group of about 40 people from all over the world who contribute regularly to Samba and have direct write access to the Samba Git repository. The number of people actively doing Git checkins is approximately 10 - 15 people. Of course, there is always room to help.
Here is a photo of some of us at the sambaXP conference for users and developers in June 2019:
If you want to become a member of the team then the first thing you should do is join the samba-technical mailing list and start contributing to the development of Samba.
Samba Team Members
Here are contact addresses for some of the team members:
Active Samba Contributors
The Samba community is much larger than just Samba Team members, and here we acknowledge the contributions from our whole community.
- GitLab analysis of recent contributors
- OpenHub last 12 Month contributors to Samba
- GitHub analysis of all-time contributions from people with GitHub accounts (only)
Mailing lists and beyond
We also explicitly acknowledge the many other ways to contribute to Samba, including Systems Administration, Release Management and assisting users on our Samba user discussion list. While these roles are are much harder to machine-summarise, they are also critical to the Samba community.
