Ok, I updated (not yet uploaded) tdb, talloc, ldb, tevent. Ready to
start actually building samba 4.10. Most interesting hurdle so far has
been the per-architecture symbols files I had to add for talloc and

I have a few questions about these packages, what is the best way to
talk about it? mail? irc? PRs in salsa?

I pushed the WIP branches to launchpad, but also to salsa (under
andreas-guest), and I'm using a PPA
(https://launchpad.net/~ahasenack/+archive/ubuntu/samba-4.10). None of
this is ready for review.

I'm keeping a public trello card up-to-date with progress, and open
questions and tasks, if you are interested:

I'm now off for a long carnival weekend, but I will work on these
every now and then mostly because it's fun (I don't do the actual
samba from Carnival, hah)
