Hi Andrew, hi everyone
Thank you for taking the time to answer these points. Three positives. 
Excellent news.

Rather than wait, could we know what the smb.conf settings are for s3fs? 
In the wiki you mention s3fs problems with gpo's. Well, the only gpo we 
have at the moment is not installing upgrades every time we switch off 
so that we can install manually when we have seen what they are.
