Description Alexander Bokovoy 2017-10-12 07:25:24 UTC
Content of each separate parameter description file is added into a parameters.all.xml file before compiling smb.conf.5.

The issue is that POSIX file systems generally don't give any promises over how glob-produced files are sorted. Thus, we need to sort them in a predictable way.
