SerNet provides binary packages much longer than your distributor does. You can
still get latest 3.6 samba packages for sles8 and rhel4 for example.

the package structure is logical, if you thing there something can be improved,
drop us a mail to samba at sernet.de. It's also not true that installing the
packages is "not reversibel". You can always uninstall the packages again and
install the distributor packages again in case that the package manager of your
distribution can not handle package conflict resolution right. Again, if you
have issues with that, feel free to contact us directly.
