Hi Rowland,

According to the link in Yvan's post, the official release date of 
Bookworm is 10 June. So you imply that it will take quite a while before 
Samba 4.18 gets into Bookworm backports? In that case I will consider 
the appropriate packages from Michael's repository.

Thanks for the information, every bit helps.

Best regards,
