smbldap-useradd and contains many lines of unused code.

sigh :-(

Furthermore, the fork was taken from smbldap-tools 0.9.5 whereas it
uses the Perl package shipped with the smbldap-tools Debian package.
In order to remain compliant with the Perl package, we should update
smbldap-machineadd-gosa to a current version (compared to
smbldap-tools, currently 0.9.7 in wheezy). On the run, we should
minimize our customized smbldap-machineadd-gosa script to the
functionality required by us.

why do we need the fork in the first place?

Because it is the script that gets triggered by Samba whenever new Windows workstation attempt to join the SKOLELINUX NT-Domain. To make this attempt a success smbldap-machineadd-gosa adds an object to LDAP with default settings for a Gosa-Samba-Machine account. Theses settings then get filled with Samba during the domain join up.
