The only Debian maintainer I really know of is someone called Andrew 
Bartlett, don't think he will be interested :-D

The other thing is, I do not understand why people use sssd on a Samba 
Unix domain member. If you are running Samba with 'security = ADS', then 
you need to run winbind, if you are running winbind, why would you run 
sssd ? It is just another conf file to configure and gives you very 
little that winbind doesn't and winbind gives you things that sssd 
doesn't, like fileshares.
