You do realize I've been publishing .spec files and build tools for
all of this for a while now, with hooks to build for CentOS  7, 8, and
Fedora 30 with full AD features enabled for a few years now? My source
repo is over at https://github.com/nkadel/samba4repo .

I'm curious if you left the "--with-experimental-mit-ad-dc" features
enabled, because I turned those off as "not yet ready for prime time".

And yes, the switch to python3 is important.
