Hello Andrew

Thanks for your work in the packaging of Samba4.

What do you suggest to those who want install samba 4 on Debian for 

I know that Sernet provides samba 4 packages for Debian stable, but, 
since Samba is a main  piece in our infraestructure and is a very 
complex software, I prefer a official version. I don't know how 
difficult it would be the migration from Sernet's packages to the 
official Debian packages when these be ready.

Another option is to compile and package sources, but the same problem: 
migration to official.

Also, as I understand, Samba4 will be backported only when reach Jessie. 
Some suggestion to impatient sysadmins?

Thank you
