I believe there is an error in the example below. The comments say 'read
only' but the 'writable = yes' would appear to be contrary.

If I am wrong, can someone point out the error of my ways.

If I am correct, could someone who knows how to submit a correction do so,
or tell me how to do it, or how to learn to do it. I am not a Unix person,
so I don't understand or don't have access to the tools mentioned in the
instructions I have read.

This is from the packaging/RedHat dir.

# A publicly accessible directory, but read only, except for people in
# the "staff" group
;   comment = Public Stuff
;   path = /home/samba
;   public = yes
;   writable = yes
;   printable = no
;   write list = @staff
