I’m too new with Samba to effectively add to the documentation, however the types of things that Louis mentioned are exactly what should be up there. As someone who is new to V4.X, having the docs include things that are common or best practice outside of samba (itself) included is invaluable for expediting new people into the ecosystem. Sure everyone can piece it together (as we all have done before), but it just helps people be more productive with the product much faster.
Just a thought from someone who is currently reading a lot of the existing documentation to get up to speed.
