Excellent. Thank you.
- the article is from 2003. It notes that nfs doesn't support ACLs (at
the time). Anyone know if nfs does now?
- it also points out that Samba (at the time) was ready to accommodate
ACLs. In actual practice, does this (mostly) meld the worlds
effectively, extending Windows ACLs (or user/group lists) to Linux
file servers (with acl enabled partitions)? [It notes, or rather, the
whitepaper does, that using Windows on a samba Linux file will let you
manipulate ACLs a la Windows.
[And, from what I quickly reviewed, my earlier in the thread thought
of having a .perms file in a directory makes even more sense.]
