Hello Andrew, thanks for your continued interest in this packaging work.

I am a bit "shocked", too (or ashamed, in some way)....but I'm sorry
to say that I don't have the time and skills to deal with the samba4
package right now, which is more or less "the Jelmer Thing" (no offense
intended, that's just the facts).

I'm just watching bugs arriving, including the gazillion upgrade
bugs that pile up in Launchpad because of whatever automated bug
reporting thing that exists in Ubuntu.

I hope we'll be able to manage preparing the Big Merge of samba and
samba4 packages and therefore provide decent "samba" packages in
jessie, that are indeed the 4.x.y series.

In doing so, I thing we'll need to keep backportability so that we can
later on provide backported "samba" packages.

So, in short, as of now, I take care of the "samba" package, namely
what was once called Samba3..:-)
