Hi Andrew,
This seems to show some of the default parameters, but what about 
non-default/optional ones (like share permissions) and % variables?
Seems like %U and %G are not honoured, and have been replaced by longer 
version, i.e. testparam -v shows two of them
template homedir = /home/%WORKGROUP%/%ACCOUNTNAME%

Can one assume that %G will be %GROUPNAME%?
Is there a validation schema/definition file for those parameters? 
Alternatively which bit of code is responsible for parsing and 
validating them?

Many Thanks
