Hello Gianluca,

The "rpm -q --changelog package" command was known to me, but the original
Samba packages doesn't contain a changelog.

As for the RHEL4 Samba packages; the changes are applied by RedHat
engineers, but if you are looking into the patches itself, they come mostly
from samba.org
How can otherwise statements of Jeremy Allison of samba.org be in patches of
RedHat... ;) and the only way to find out is to dig in the patches

I could not agree more with you.
BTW, perhaps you already know, but just in case:
If you want to see the patches applied to a package during its history, and
you don't need to dig into the sources themselves, you can query the
changelog for an rpm package without having to download

rpm -q --changelog package

for example  for my samba-3.0.10-1.4E.2
rpm -q --changelog samba
