Introduction

As it appears now, we configured our Samba server too hastily, and didn't do enough testing. It had multiple issues, with symlinks (see Conference under Docker), locking (Conference under Docker and Conference under Docker), permissions (Conference under Docker), and extended attributes (Conference under Docker). Some of these issues have been resolved, and some haven't. This section is the documentation of a search for better smb.conf settings. Ultimately, we want to be able to compile things on a Samba filesystem, hence the title.
