Hi!

As discussed during the week, here are a couple of patches for the cwfs(4) and fs(4) documentation.

Out of the box noauth is enabled on every installation I've made, and it does make sense, because it is safe to assume that there is still no auth server setup (thanks kvik for pointing that out)

Patches ahead, thanks!

thank you for clarifying this.
maybe also mention that it's a toggle switch?
the risk i see is maybe somebody forgot it was enabled and hereby disables it :D

Good point. I also thought about it, but since the fsconfig(8) man page describes noauth as a toggle switch, I hesitated to say so on the patched pages.

Nevertheless, it is better to put this explicitly.

Patches with the mention of the toggle switch ahead.
