The default samba configuration in debian allows regular users to
create shares with "net usershare" and its (filemanager) GUI frontends.
(as of #443230)
However, users are not able to make their shares public.
(e.g. nautilus-shares option is grayed out)
To enabling this funtionality, one still needs to add the following settings
usershare allow guests = yes
map to guest = bad user
As the system shares defined in the default config have explicit
"guest ok = no" lines, it looks to me that it should not produce a problem to
add these settings to the default global section, or define them at compile time.
Nevertheless, to limit the sharing to files owned by the creator of a share,
the following may be a suitable default:
usershare owner only = yes
Please, adjust the defaults for full support for usershares.
