Hai guys, 
I hope everybody is doing well and keeping safe. 

A bit ahead in schedule off the release of Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa in 2 days. 
Since i dont have time in the next days, i've prepaired them now. 

I've added new packages for Ubuntu 20.04 Samba 4.12.1 only amd64 packages. ( sources available offcourse in repo )

I've included the following patches from Bugzilla
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14336 'net ads keytab create' doesn't add the UPN of the host as an entry
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14343 'vfs_full_audit panics when accessing Samba
temp-fix-is-is-litteral.patch  a small python patch, more cosmetic patch. Thanks David :-) 

Please test/rollout them as normal, suggestions, let me know. 

Note, Upgrading for Focal's samba 4.11.5 works as normal. 
I always recommend to use : 
apt upgrade --autoremove --purge 
apt dist-upgrade --autoremove --purge ( needed when new packages are pulled in on upgrades ) 

----------- THE REPO SETUP ---------------
1) Choose http or https for you apt, both work, for https you need to :
apt-get install apt-transport-https

2) Import my public key
wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -

3) (optional) setup a header line for the repo file.
echo "# AptVanBelle repo for samba." | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

4) In the line below, change the OS and/or samba version to what you want.
echo "# Samba 4.12 for Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian focal-samba412 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

See : https://apt.van-belle.nl/ for what is supported on my repo.

Have fun with these.
