This package (samba) has been modified from upstream Gentoo due to multiple changes necessary for use in Chrome OS. These changes include:

  • Bug fixes (i.e. for https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12696) not yet added to a release
  • Non-upstreamed patches needed for Active Directory support
  • Various cross-compilation fixes needed for aarch64 and lld linking
  • Features disabled (i.e. perl and python) to minimise files installed in the rootfs.

Although some of these changes could be upstreamed, such as cross-compilation fixes, it is unlikely that all changes necessary for Chrome OS could be submitted to upstream Gentoo. Therefore it is unliklely this package could be moved back to portage-stable.
