It would be useful to allow for a simple public share in ebox. Requiring users/groups can create extra steps in cases where samba is required but specific users accounts/groups are not managed. Home use is a prime example.
My first thought is to create a "Public" check box on the [Shares] tab in Office->File sharing. The other option would be to add a public option to the access control menu so you would have a choice of user/group/public.
An example public share would be:
comment = Public (public files)
writable = yes <--Configurable via permissions in access control
path = /home/samba/public
public = yes <--public Share!
only guest = yes
guest account = nobody
browsable = yes
