[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#732344: samba-libs: hdb_samba4.so: too loose dependency on heimdal

Package: samba-libs
Version: 2:4.0.13+dfsg-1
Severity: serious


as far as I can tell, hdb_samba4.so built against heimdal 
1.6~git20131117+dfsg-3 can no longer work with heimdal 1.6~git20120403+dfsg1-2 
due to bumped plugin interface version. However, samba-libs dependencies do 
not indicate this requirement (heimdal >= 1.4.0+git20110226 there only) As a 
result, partial upgrades are possible.

What is more, I think it may not be enough to bump heimdal dep to the latest 
version. Actually, you should ensure that older samba-libs does not get used 
with newer (i.e. with bumped plugin interface) heimdal. Probably this would be 
best achieved by heimdal exporting its plugin interface version (as virtual 
package) via shlibs/symbols so all plugins could pick it up automagically 
(provided there is a symbol in heimdal all plugins will use). So I'm CC'ing 
heimdal maintainers as well.
