I just installed VL Standard 7.0 on my main laptop. Seems pretty good so far, but I cannot install updates, because the new Samba package can't be downloaded and a bunch of stuff depends on it.
I took a look at the main mirror, and found that it wasn't a case of Samba being listed with the wrong version in the manifest; rather, the package simply did not exist in the repository.
What happened? Is the package in the process of being built, i.e. I just happened to install at a bad time?
Edit: worked around this by enabling the Testing repo. This seems to work, but probably shouldn't be necessary...
