Making setting up a Samba server, NFS server or a ISCSI server (target) 
easier would be awesome.
I think it would be good to start with SMB/NFS/ISCSI client 
configuration in Cockpit though.
To walk before running so to say.
For ISCSI client (initiator), there is a spec and some mockups, but no 
code yet. [1]
Nothing for NFS yet, but it would be cool to tackle soon.

As I mentioned in the IRC meeting. If someone is really eager implement 
the code for the server parts first, I'm happy to help with the design.
