as explained in my last mail[1] and in the ITP[2], we're packaging a
dcom/wmi client for linux (called winexe), including the python bindings
to wmi, which is based on a part of the Samba sources (including a patch
to librpc and using a few other common libraries form the Samba
sources). Our goal for the future would be to reduce the size of our
orig.tar.gz by removing the samba sources and using the needed libraries
and their -dev pacakges as far as possible, as soon as Samba4 hits
unstable. In the meantime our package will stay based on r17234 of the
Samba sources and will build statically linked executeables.

If you have any opinion/suggestions/onjections, please let us now.

Best regards,
