ttx review (20091130) -- Remark: samba info might contain some information the user will prefer scrubbed, like share names. Spec doc is missing the usual chapters in the end (after Design).

mdz review 2009-11-30: Added simple test plan, noted the need to scrub smb.conf, and added an interactive hook component for samba (this is what I interpreted "include the contents of DebuggingSamba" to mean), approved

jib review 2010-1-13: Marked items with a priority number; (1)s are Canonical targets for Alpha3. Community nominations for additional hooks or volunteers to implement hooks much appreciated.

Status:
Complete.
