Subject: Re: [PATCH] Userspace helper to display quota information for the Linux SMB client file system (CIFS)

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay in responses. I agree with the idea to re-write
smbinfo in python since it gives more flexibility. And yes, we will
need installers for python utilities in order to properly ship those.

I am going to cut off the next release at the beginning of next week.
The "next" branch is updated to have everything that I have got for
now, except smbinfo re-write in python that I would like to postpone
for the next release.

If any patch is missed or If someone has any WIP patches that need to
be in the next release, please let me know.

Best regards,
Pavel Shilovsky
