I wasn't clear enough.

If you installed some samba component from my repo, it will be of version
4.17.6-1. If you remove my repo from sources.list and add bpo11 repo
instead, all available samba components will be of version 4.17.6-1~bpo11.
So you wont be able to install any *other* samba component anymore,
because they depend on exact version of each other. So you'll have to
"downgrade" already installed components to ~bpo11 version first, and
only after that you'll be able to install other components from there.

Components - for example, if you installed smbclient but want to install
winbind, or installed winbind without samba, etc.

But looking at the $subject again, I guess this is all moot anyway,
because I don't provide armel architecture in my repository.

Anyway, that's all good now.
