Update Samba to the 4.9.x branch (from the 4.8.x branch)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Fedora uses Samba 4.9.x with Fedora 29 (GNOME 3.30.x) and Samba 4.10.x with Fedora 30 (GNOME 3.32.x).

Since I prefer the conservative route, let's stick with 4.9.x (maintenance mode) for now.

This implies updates to

  • talloc (2.1.14 -> 2.1.16)
  • tevent (0.9.37 -> 0.9.39)
  • tdb (1.3.16 -> 1.3.18)
  • ldb (1.3.8 -> 1.4.6; ldb releases are keyed to samba minor releases 1.3.x <-> 4.8.x, 1.4.x <-> 4.9.x etc.)

... with attendant rebuilds of:

  • notmuch (talloc)
    • astroid (notmuch)
  • rhythmbox (tdb)
    • rhythmbox-alternative-toolbar (rhythmbox)
  • cmocka-1.1.5 (ldb needs a newer cmocka than the one in the repo)
  • samba
    • (...)

It turns out that upstream only switched to py3 by default for the 4.10.x series. Looks like we're staying on 2.7.x for now. =/
