Quoting Jelmer Vernooij (firstname.lastname@example.org): > Package: wnpp > Severity: wishlist > Owner: Jelmer Vernooij <email@example.com> This is a plan we discussed with Jelmer at the SambaXP conference. (for people less involved in samba stuff, Jelmer is, along with Andrew Bartlett, one of the two "lead" developers of Samba4). Given the Samba4 release timeframe, having both samba3 and samba4 packages in Debian makes sense for quite some time. We not only want to release Debian with a stable Samba (which means releasing with 3.x) but also give Samba4 the widest exposure possible (which means having it in unstable at least). These samba4 package are *not targeted for lenny*. Security updates for such alpha releases wouldn't be reasonable, of course. So, it's quite likely that the first one or two uploads will be sent to experimental. There will then be uploads to unstable, but we'll take care of blocking them from entering testing. Having this samba4 source package along with many binary packages it will produce (several libraries), will also help integrating Openchange (the Free MS-Exchange interoperable server/client)....all this being targeted at lenny+1.
