Hi Garrett,

I think building those rpms from the source rpms involves using waf too..

The Samba team dropped python 2 support in samba 4.14 and above so 
whatever python2 support is left might probably be on the way out..

I have been building from samba.org source this way for years and it allows me to upgrade in similar fashion when there is a Security update.  Is this a RHEL 8 or Python 3 nuance with the newer versions of Samba.  Should I try to go with an earlier version of Samba and make sure I am using Python 2?
