Upgrading the Samba Debian package
I have a production server running Sarge (please, save the flames).
It's running great, with a few minor exceptions.
One exception is some odd file-save and Quickbooks behavior that I
believe is attributable to issues with Opportunistic Locking that have
been fixed in Samba 2.2.7.
Now, from the package search pages on www.debian.org, the current debian
Samba packages are:
stable (woody) samba_2.2.3a-12.3
testing (sarge) samba_2.2.3a-6
unstable (sid) samba_2.999+3.0.alpha23-4
So, my questions are:
1. Why does the stable package appear to be more recent than the
2. I assume that Samba 2.2.4 through 2.2.7a made it into, and now out
of, unstable, on the way to 2.999+3.0. Where are they?
3. I assume that the general concensus is that jumping to 2.999+3.0 on
a production server would be unwise?
Your input and assistance are greatly appreciated in advance . . . ;-)
