Figured people running 5.0-CURRENT might be interested in this news -- I
know this is a feature we've been asked about frequently, and Chris has
done a great job in making it happen :-).  There are still a few tweaks
being worked out in the ACL code, and we need to write some regression
tests, but it seems to work quite well.

Subject: Native ACL support for Samba

With the release of Samba 2.2.0, samba offers ACL support to
remote clients.  I just committed the changes to the FreeBSD
CVS tree required to allow Samba to access the FreeBSD ACLs.
With an updated -current system and samba-devel port (define
WITH_ACL_SUPPORT), Windows NT 4.0 and 2000 clients can now
remotely manipulate ACLs.  Testing and comments are

In addition, the ACL utilities, getfacl and setfacl, have
been updated to fully make use of the ACL editing library.
They should compile on most ACL-enabled systems (tested on
Linux + ACL patches) with little or no change.

For the requisite screenshot, see :)
