So, a short summary about samba packages:
Etch: we might need to backport the fix for #488688 as this is a
regression introduced in last security fix
So far, no work was made on this
Samba 3: 3.0.30-4 is on its way to testing. It was mostly
uploaded to guarantee that we have the fix for
#488688 in lenny. Until then we have
Samba 4: we don't want it in lenny
Samba 3: Waiting for 3.0.30-4 to enter testing. Then we'll
upload 3.2.0 in unstable. It will need
some merge in SVN which we briefly discussed
with Steve on IRC (privately....not because
that had to be private, just because it happened
in the middle of a private discussion)
Samba 4: Planned by Jelmer. We will block it in unstable
Jelmer: next upload of samba4 to unstable?
Samba 3: 3.2.0 final is in experimental now. Steve unscrewed
the problem with debian/copyright which got
unnoticed until then. Thanks for this.
Samba 4: 4.0.0~alpha4~20080616-2 in experimental. Few bug
reports AFAIK. Many pending l10n updates.
New upload to unstable?
talloc, ldb, tdb: well maintained by Jelmer who's upstream
I haven't checked but I guess that both are in
ctdb: good support by Mathieu (who just began the NM process)
Should we consider it for testing?
Will we build samba 3.2.0 with it?
openchange: Jelmer is upstream as well. Not a candidate
for testing because it depends on some samba4 stuff
IIRC, but something that should go in unstable
IMHO, and even if I said the contrary some time ago, we should go for
3.2.0 in lenny. Unless something really bad happens, that's the only
viable option (according to upstream) if we want long term support.
