Just a quick heads up about a Samba 4.10 packaging experience:
I've used uupdate to build a Debian package with Samba 4.10rc2 and feared the
upstream python changes but that turned out to be a non-issue, at least for a
Stretch based build environment (python2.7). I just had to patch a single
python waf module which aborted due to some unicode vs str assertion. I guess
it's as easy for a python3 based environment. The dependency chain to ldb
1.5.3 and cmocka 1.1.3 caused more iterations for me, because my uupdated
cmocka source package somehow FTBFS, but that was probably just me.
