To build:
See instructions at: https://salsa.debian.org/samba-team/samba/blob/master/debian/README.source.md
Check out the official Debian packaging:
git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-samba/samba4 samba4-unstable
Samba is not a native Debian package, so you will need to create
an .orig.tar.gz tarball. Run:
./debian/rules get-orig-source
This will create the .orig.tar.gz file in your working directory.
Move this directory to ../tarballs:
mkdir ../tarballs && mv *.orig.tar.gz ../tarballs
You can now use git-buildpackage or dpkg-buildpackage to build the Debian package:
$ git-buildpackage
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
==== contributed, not official FAQ ====
Q: This sources are old: 4.0.0~rc6+dfsg1-1 (Tue, 4 Dec 2012). There are newer versions planned for Debian7 (stable)?
A: In short: No, read https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba-technical/2013-April/091878.html
Q: What is the best way to get a newer Debian7 package, without recompiling the sources?
A: Depends, the lazy way is using enterprisesamba packages, but you have to register there (consider to build your own packages, ie. dh-make)
