Hi Christoph
Actually that is what we want. Under nfs for our Linux clients, 
everything comes from the directory. Under s3fs, uidNumber and gidNumber 
still have to come from idmap. I think your patch will allow s3fs to 
also pull uidNumber:gidNumber from the directory if they are already 
there. Have I got thhat right?

I shall surely look at the manpage patch but could you tell me if

idmap config DOMAIN : backend = rfc2307

goes into smb.conf global section?

Cheers and thanks for your time.
