[Samba] version question regarding Louis's samba ADDC install scripts for Debian Sernet packages

Hi Louis!

Thanks for the help so far.   It's terrific having the scripts to review 
before pulling the trigger.

A few clarifications, if you don't mind...

the 4-jessie-samba-dc script does *not* use the sernet packages - correct?

Details of the samba package for jessie show samba version 4.1.17 - is 
this correct as far as you know?

This script also repeats the 1-tools script -- you may want to comment 
this section out so you don't mess with the install of someone like me 
who has already run the 1-tools script (and customized it for vm 
installation with esxi, etc). lines 180-185.

In the 0-setup-apt-debian-4 script, lines 49-54, there is an 
entry/explanation that I don't understand:
> ###### Debian Backports apt setup
> ## not needed for debian testing/sid
> ## set to yes if
> ## 1) dont want to use sernet-samba
> ## 2) You are using debian wheezy and you want samba 4.1.x

I'm guessing now that the only way to get samba 4.2 (without compiling 
it myself) on debian 8 is to use the sernet packages.  Can you confirm 
that?  In other words, this script is probably not a good fit if I 
decide I want the sernet 4.2 packages with Jessie, yes?.

Thanks once again!

Experience is something you get just after you need it.
