Suggest rewording of "default case" in smb.conf(5)
Last modified: 2009-05-11 04:52:42 UTC
In the section of smb.conf(5) that describes the "default case"
parameter, the structure of the sentences and lack of punctuation
leaves them open to a number of interpretations.
Suggested wording for this paragraph is as follows:
default case = upper/lower
controls what the default case is for new filenames (ie. files
that don´t currently exist in the filesystem). Default
_lower_. IMPORTANT NOTE: As part of the optimizations for
directories containing large numbers of files, the following
special case applies. If the options _case_sensitive_=_yes_,
_preserve_case_=_No_, and _short_preserve_case_=_No_ are set,
then the case of _all_ incoming client filenames, not just new
filenames, will be modified. See additional notes below.
