hello all,

im trying to figure out the precedence of security parameters in
smb.conf. i know that settings in specific shares take precedence over
settings in global; 'invalid users' takes precidence over all other
security settings. but others im not so clear on, such as: does 'read
only' take precedence over 'write list'? or do later entries simply
overwrite earlier ones?

for instance, will the following allow user2 to write to [share]?

read only = yes
valid users = user1 user2
read list = user1
write list = user2

thanks in advance for any info...
