Missing documentation of "winbind:ignore domains" option
Last modified: 2017-09-15 10:51:04 UTC
The "winbind:ignore domains" smb.conf option is not documented:
source3/winbindd/winbindd_util.c: ignored_domains = lp_parm_string_list(-1, "winbind", "ignore domains", NULL);

Usually, parametric options are not documented, because they are made for special tweaks that can do harm.

hm, this is is what often happens but not what is supposed to be. We
have lot's of parametric options useful for many people, which are just
known by one or two people, this is a good example for that. We never
had a rule that parametric options need not to be docuemted, it was just
bad habit that this happens again and again (maybe because not even
testparm -v tells people that those options exist).
