Hey Luke,

Regarding your GPO update patches, I ended up doing a bit of work on it, 
actually reapplying the patches to master, fixing some of the issues 
with that and just a bunch of formatting changes.

One thing that took a while to realize was that the directory names on 
my computer were uppercase when the code didn't expect that. To fix 
that, at least in one place, it now starts up a local CIFS connection. I 
haven't been able to improve some of this behaviour though and I haven't 
been able to work on much for a while, but I just made sure to rebase 
the code just today and make sure it compiles properly.

git://       gpo-update;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/gpo-update

One thing I actually changed to the loadparm system recently was the 
requirement for a docs-xml page, so I just added a basic page just now 
for the parameter you added. There's still various fix-ups in it which 
will need to be squashed at some point. Anyways, there's still very much 
of an interest in getting this polished.
