Is anyone maintaining the smb filesystem in the Linux kernel?

Emails to the Email address ur...@teststation.com of Urban Widmark that
is listed in MAINTAINERS are bouncing.

Can anyone tell how to reach Urban and/or whether anyone is currently
maintaining smbfs?

It probably won't help you much, but I had the same problem few months
ago. There was a bug in smbfs which I tried to discuss with someone, and
after failing to contact the maintainer, I sent the fix to Linus. I don't
think even he managed to get a response from Urban or someone else. The
fix went in so I stopped chasing it.

So it looks like smbfs is not maintained.
