Kia Ora Matt!

Work is currently ongoing doing a Debian package.  Please join 
Debian Samba Maintainers <pkg-samba-maint at> and
assist Michael as he works though the issues.

Significantly we have noticed that Debian's rules did not set 
PYTHONHASHSEED=1 (because it called 'waf' and not 'configure' and
'make' where we set that). 

We now prohibit that with

Debian Samba needs all the help it can get, so please do lend a hand if
you can.
