4.1.4 is only in experimental.
and sid(ustable) has only 4.0.5

Neither of these versions has long term support from upstream point of view.
And try to look into patches

If freeipa get to the state that there will not be any non-upstream
patches in distibutions then we will not consider Fedora as upstream.
It might easily happen that non-upstream patch caused a bug.

BTW sssd is already in such state. Therefore we needn't care
about distribution; we just need to know the version of sssd.

Fell free to send patches if you want to have debian as 1st class citizen for
