Description Luke Mewburn 2004-09-16 06:12:28 UTC
testparm (and swat I suppose) sometimes display the synonyms (aliases) for
certain options than the canonical name, at least based on smb.conf(5).

Reordering the items in loadparm.c fixes the output of testparm to display the
canonical name. The reordered options are:
  min passwd length  ->  min password length
  timestamp logs  ->  debug timestamp
  exec  ->  preexec

Patch to follow...

An updated patch follows; "protocol" is a synonym for "max protocol" and is
unnecessarily displayed.
