I didn't think you're knocking or anything, either.  This
is why I expressed my view this way: with any external
repo you have to monitor it some way, to know if it is
allive still, and be prepared to switch to something
else, this is exactly my point.  Especially these days
when things are much less stable than we all used to.

Debian had quite outdated samba for a few releases, and
no samba backports. So being "official" does not mean
anything either, unfortunately.
