2	===============
3	Steve French (sfrench@samba.org)
5	The author wishes to express his appreciation and thanks to:
6	Andrew Tridgell (Samba team) for his early suggestions about smb/cifs VFS
7	improvements. Thanks to IBM for allowing me time and test resources to pursue
8	this project, to Jim McDonough from IBM (and the Samba Team) for his help, to
9	the IBM Linux JFS team for explaining many esoteric Linux filesystem features.
10	Jeremy Allison of the Samba team has done invaluable work in adding the server
11	side of the original CIFS Unix extensions and reviewing and implementing
12	portions of the newer CIFS POSIX extensions into the Samba 3 file server. Thank
13	Dave Boutcher of IBM Rochester (author of the OS/400 smb/cifs filesystem client)
14	for proving years ago that very good smb/cifs clients could be done on Unix-like
15	operating systems.  Volker Lendecke, Andrew Tridgell, Urban Widmark, John 
16	Newbigin and others for their work on the Linux smbfs module.  Thanks to
17	the other members of the Storage Network Industry Association CIFS Technical
18	Workgroup for their work specifying this highly complex protocol and finally
19	thanks to the Samba team for their technical advice and encouragement.
