Yes, use the current GIT tree.  We hope to make an alpha14 release soon,
but there isn't any particular value in waiting for it. 

We do have a number of production sites running Samba, including with
multiple servers and migrated domains from Windows.   A single DC
install is very simple in comparison :-). 

You are free (indeed, it's better) to ask questions about Samba4 on the
samba-technical list, or join us on #samba-technical on

The code is still alpha, but that mostly means that we need you to work
with us closely when something goes wrong, so we can fix it up or work
around it as quickly as possible.
