after reading carefully the results of my "Samba User Survey 2015"
(https://www.samba.org/~mmuehlfeld/), I thought a lot about how to
improve our documentation.

During the last 4 days in 403 wiki changes I splitted and renamed many
pages, restructured a lot, etc. The first really visible result of this
work is a completely new and restructured "User documentation" page:

I haven't edited much content during this process, so don't be
disappointed. It was just the spadework for the big project:
- rework all pages
- make pages more clear
- move distro specific and extra stuff to separate pages
- be more detailed with more examples and screenshots
- more background information
- bring one style to all pages
- etc.

And the long-term project: Have an eye on what people add on which
places in the wiki. Currently everone adds notes and more wherever on
existing pages and turns some guides into a completely confusing mess.

I'll keep you informed. ;-)
