Hai Marco, 

Stretch backports is gone after Buster got stable. 
All stretch backported packages are somewhere in archive i think. 
And no there are no samba backports, thats why i create these packages. 
The problem is, not enough people helping out in the samba packages on debian, only 1-2 people do it atm. 
Im in addition im trying to help them out also, but i need better git skills to be a really good help. 
Im working on that.  ;-)
