There's no noticeable difference between ubuntu and debian samba packages.
Ubuntu does rebranding (so it says "Ubuntu samba xx.yy" instead of
"Debian samba xx.yy" - not a big deal at all), they disable glusterfs
and uring support on i386 only (does not affect amd64 packages), and they
disable ceph (which is in universe not in main).

The diff is pretty small, and I incorporated some of that into debian package
already (conditional on dpkg-vendor).  Modulo the d/control changes it can be
just rebuilt on ubuntu.  That's why I asked what other variants are needed:
to me it is trivial to provide other package combinations.  Let's wait till
the Oct-25 new release wave and I'll see what can be done with ubuntu, almost
everything is already here (including a few my ubuntu build chroots where I
tested other things).

Perhaps I can contact the ubuntu samba maintainers here :)

Ubuntu does have 4.15 samba in 22.04 release (iirc anyway), and this is their
lts release, - hopefully they update samba with this win11 22H2 thing.
