So as of now, Samba 4.11.8 is available for Debian Buster (amd64/i386/armhf) on my repo.
Also available Samba 4.12.2 Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04 only amd64.

Info : https://apt.van-belle.nl 

How to use it : 

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

# Enable the repo Debian Buster samba 4.11 
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian buster-samba411 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

# Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04
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

And install as you normaly would do. Tip, upgrading these packages, use : 
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade --autoremove --purge 

Withouth the --autoremove --purge the old and obsolete ldb packages aren't removed and will cause conflicts. 
And without the dist-upgrade your missing the extra packages that needs to be installed for 4.10.x ( or any higher samba version )

This is mainly in transition from LDB1.X to LDB2.X. and due to my packages having spotlight enables in the builds, where Debian Offical does not have it.

Have fun with these. 
.. next to come 4.12 buster, this take bit longer due armhf building. 

Questions, just ask.
