tried it a few minutes ago. apt-get update shows:

Hit http://non-us.debian.org stable/non-US/non-free Release
Hit ftp://de.samba.org stable/main Packages
Get:2 ftp://de.samba.org stable/main Release
Hit ftp://ftp.de.debian.org stable/main Packages
Ign ftp://de.samba.org stable/main Release

I don't know much about Debian but I got the same messages right before
updating 2.2.3 from the "standard" Debian stable to Version 2.2.7a published 
by the Samba-team on their mirrors. I don't know why the output shows 
"Get 2" and "Ign" for de.samba.org but it did work.
I'm using the german mirror. Perhaps you can try another one. 

# dpkg -s samba

Package: samba
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: net
Installed-Size: 5820
Maintainer: Simo Sorce <idra at samba.org>
Version: 2.2.7a-0.1

Perhaps Simo can give more information. The information should be
reliable before it will be submited to apt-get.org.
