Any news from SUSE/openSUSE about the inclusion of a

testing with you.
Samba 4 as a system which provides some of the core Microsoft Active
Directory Services still or even more relies on the Heimdal Kerberos
While any recent openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise version utilizes the
MIT Kerberos implementation.
It's possible to build binaries with the in Samba tree included Heimdal.
But anybody doing so must be aware to track potential Heimdal security
issues at its own.
What we can offer are switches in the spec file which makes it possible
to use Heimdal while building inside the openSUSE Build Service.
Building inside the openSUSE Build Service does not mean getting part of
an openSUSE release. By two reasons:
a) There isn't such high demand.
b) We as the SUSE Samba Maintainers will not maintain such Samba
If people are willing to maintain a set of extra, cloned Samba packages
which offers the described feature set as part of an openSUSE release
I'm happy to see this too. But be aware maintaining such a package set
can be quite time consuming.
