Samba4 How To

In order to keep the wiki a bit cleaner, it'd be best to start a new page
(something like IPTables rules for samba) and link to it from the main
howto, the main howto is getting a bit jumbled right now, many things need
moved to separate pages in my opinion. GPO's could and should have a new
page, as should administration, and any special bind stuff (including dlz
config and selinux/apparmor stuff). I personally think the howto should be
the bare minimum instructions for setting up an AD/DC, and links to more
in-depth pages for the extra/special options. I have been making minor
changes as needed recently, but I really think the entire howto
needs restructured. Any feedback on this is welcome, and I don't mind doing
changes, but would like the opinion of the samba team before proceeding in
this direction... I'd definitely be willing to work with someone on a new
page and getting community opinion on it first if you'd rather.

Let me know,
