As I recall (& maybe I'm wrong), with the Van Belle packages
you did not need to specify each package - "upgrade samba"
did the trick.
With the backports it seems you need to specify each
of the packages. How do you know you got everything selected
so that you don't end up with problems.
I'd like to upgrade two DC's & two servers and don't
want to mess them up (as I have a talent to do just that)
