Thanks for the comments Jelle

For libelf - very valid - and it's also not much out of date either.

The version of samba in testing is 4.11.2 and it has been there since
last November and is now also behind current version (4.11.6).

Understand folks being busy for sure. In case of samba and refind-efi
perhaps the packager could use some additional help?

thanks again!
