Using it as default from 1st version in ports.

All work fine:
$ pkg info -r samba411
samba411-4.11.11:
        far2l-g20200622
        ffmpeg-4.3.1,1
        kio-extras-20.04.3_1
        vlc-3.0.11_3,4
        mpv-0.32.0_4,1
        mplayer-1.4.0.20200621_2

PR should probably go to portmgr, but I can't change the assigne.
Comment 3 daniel.engberg.lists 2020-08-03 13:52:59 UTC
Next time please be more verbose why you think this change needs to be done as it's a port that's popular (affects many) and we should avoid unnecessary breakage.

One valid reason is because its close to eol by upstream ("~2020-09") .

Regarding this version in particular if we for whatever reason need to downgrade it might be an issue for some users.

"Samba 4.11 has changed how the AD database is stored on disk. AD users should not really be affected by this change when upgrading to 4.11. However, AD users should be extremely careful if they need to downgrade from Samba 4.11 to an older release."

I think we can close this as we have both 4.12 and 4.13 in tree.
Comment 5 Dries Michiels 2020-10-06 17:18:04 UTC
I have renamed to bug to be more general. This way we can still track the fact that a bump of the default version should still occur (4.10 is EOL? or at least soonish). Given that 4.12 and 4.13 are in the tree now, I talked to Timur and we should let them mature a bit (4.12) before bumping the default version (probably to 4.12).
Comment 6 Dries Michiels 2020-10-06 17:22:00 UTC
FYI: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_Release_Planning
4.10 has been EOL-ed @ 2020-09-22
Comment 7 VVD 2020-10-06 18:23:35 UTC
(In reply to daniel.engberg.lists from comment #4)
Do it 4.13 - work for me fine.
Comment 8 Timur I. Bakeyev freebsd_committer 2020-10-17 19:10:10 UTC
4.12 is set as a new default.
