Sorry for all delays, it was needed.
I have also restructured the repo setup a bit, so package re-use is better which saved me some time.
This resulted in a samba 4.8 for jessie, no need for multiple repo lines anymore.
You choose the samba you want to run and you stay at that version until you change the repo.
The site info isnt updated yet with this, i'll do that after i finish up with the debian stretch packages.
For now the Debian Jessie packages and available are amd64/i386 and sources.
Import my key: wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -
samba 4.5.x unmaintained/EOL 4.5.16 is the last.
samba 4.6. : echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian jessie-samba46 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
package list: http://apt.van-belle.nl/current-packages-in-jessie-samba46-apt.txt
samba 4.7. : echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian jessie-samba47 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

samba 4.8. : echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian jessie-samba47 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

Build logs and .changes can be found here:
If extra packages are needed for the install, you need to use dist-upgrade of use apt-get install (packages list)
If upgrade from a 4.5/4.6 to higher, i do advice to read :
THE OLDER REPO NAMES WONT GET THE UPDATE, YOU MUCH CHANGE THIS ONE TIME. (sorry for that)
The debian stretch line is going to follow the same structure. ( do note, not done yet, working on that now )
This gives you the following advantage:
- You run Debian Jessie with samba 4.6, you want to upgrade debian to stretch but not samba.
Change the repo line to stretch-samba46 and now your done.
- You run Debian Jessie with samba 4.6 and you want Debian Stretch with samba 4.8
Change the repo in jessie to jessie-samba48, upgrade samba, fix the smb.conf, change the repo to stretch-samba48
upgrade debian to stretch.
And this might avoid problems while upgrading to os.
At least this works great for me.
If you find tips, problem etc, post it to the samba list, im there.
