I stated that I would like to review the *next* upload as the packages
still have me as sole maintainer at the moment, but that I would be
happy to review a change that made them (and that goes for all four
packages) team maintained.

I said I would upload my git repositories so that new uploads
could be prepared based on those repositories, not that I would do an

The new repositories that were uploaded share no history with the
repositories I provided, and they discard all pristine tar data that
was present in the bzr branch (safe for the last NMU).

There seems to be an upload in the tdb changelog which never actually
happened (1.2.11-3) ?

This doesn't seem to be what we talked about in May. I don't want
to block Samba 4 hitting unstable, so reluctant ACK for the NMU. I don't
see why we need to replace the git repositories.
