Thee are also the samba3x packages, which are a much more recent version,
and now the samba4x are getting much more current. In fact, if you want to
play with samba-4.0.5, I'd appreciate your tests of my Samba 4.0.5 backport
from Fedora to RHEL at https://github.com/nkadel/samba-4.0.5-srpm. I've
also got all the other necessary build components, like updated
libtevent libtalloc and hooks for an updated yum repository to support
them, at https://github.com/nkadel/.
