Quoting Jelmer Vernooij (jelmer at samba.org):

This is a plan we discussed with Jelmer at the SambaXP conference.
(for people less involved in samba stuff, Jelmer is, along with Andrew
Bartlett, one of the two "lead" developers of Samba4).

Given the Samba4 release timeframe, having both samba3 and samba4
packages in Debian makes sense for quite some time.

We not only want to release Debian with a stable Samba (which means
releasing with 3.x) but also give Samba4 the widest exposure possible
(which means having it in unstable at least).

These samba4 package are *not targeted for lenny*. Security updates
for such alpha releases wouldn't be reasonable, of course.

So, it's quite likely that the first one or two uploads will be sent
to experimental.

There will then be uploads to unstable, but we'll take care of
blocking them from entering testing.

Having this samba4 source package along with many binary packages it
will produce (several libraries), will also help integrating
Openchange (the Free MS-Exchange interoperable server/client)....all
this being targeted at lenny+1.
