Hai Tom, 

All packages where possible will get this security update. 
Im working from latest versions and OS down. 
It only take a bit more time to build them all and test them. 
But builds are running. 

If you want to do this upgrade yourself, this one is pretty easy. 

# Enable my repo and the sources. 

apt update

apt source samba
# This gets the older version. 
# And the new version
wget https://download.samba.org/pub/samba/stable/samba-4.11.13.tar.gz 
# extract it. 
# copy the debian folder into the newer samba version. 
cp samba-4.11.11/debian samba-4.11.13/

# Some packages needed to build. 
apt-get install fakeroot devscripts build-essential

# get samba build dependecies
apt-get build-dep samba

cd samba-4.11.13/
editor debian/changelog
dch -i  
# is better, just not sure if its installed with above. 

# Update the change log, copy the previes part, 
# change the version and dates and signer. 
# save 

dpkg-buildpackage -B

Should do it. 
And a simple setup for a file repo. 

But packages will come in coming days.
