Samba 4

Hi list,

I'd like to know what Ubuntu's plans are for its samba package.

Currently, Ubuntu has a stable samba package at 3.6.18 and a samba4
package that's basically unusable.

In Debian, Samba has seen a lot of work during the last year or so,
including the move from 3.6 to 4 and the removal of the separate samba4
package.  It probably hasn't seen wide-spread testing yet, though.

Will this be merged in time for the LTS or will that happen during the
next cycle due to stability reasons?
