Thanks.  How would you like to assist?  

We essentially need more parts of Samba migrated to python3 compatible
code, both in the C bindings (most of the work is in this area) and the
python code.  All changes need tests, including where the existing code
is not tested (which can make this quite a bit of work). 

Have a look over the latest set of changes to get an idea what kind of
work is required.
