These are five projects that are almost ready and would be nice to have finished and documented.

See if you can help test or contribute to them. We limit the projects to five to concentrate effort.

SMTP Smart relay over SSL

Backup with dar

This contrib uses dar (http://dar.linux.free.fr) to create a feature rich backup system for smeserver to network shares or attached USB disk.

This rpm has moved from being a contrib, to testing stage for inclusion in the base install. The latest version of the rpm can be found in the smetest repo

Disable yum remove

Software installer (namely "Remove installed software") is removing more than just the packages selected due to dependencies.

It runs yum -y remove <selected packages> and therefore removes the requested packages along with any dependencies BUT without asking for confirmation. I think this is a bit dangerous and much to tempting especially for someone that is a "bit sleepy"

Shadow Copy

Letting network users restore previous versions via Explorer has dramatically reduced the need for me to involve myself in restoring files and is a tremendous timesaver overall.

This is already implemented, it just needs verification it works.

LDAP user account information and authentication

Perhaps it would be nice to take a look at 1543 and try and implement the excellent work done by Sebastien Fourestier. Storing user information and authentication in a LDAP backend would improve adding Linux workstations to the domain as well (Samba man pages: Winbind: Microsoft Active Directory Services).
