Bug Description

Please remove gadmin-samba from the archive.

Reasons:
a) upstream url from d/control is gone: http://www.gadmintools.org/

b) hasn't been updated in years:
$ rmadison gadmin-samba
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu1 | precise/universe | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, powerpc
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu1 | trusty/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc, ppc64el
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu1 | xenial/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc, ppc64el, s390x
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu2 | bionic/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu2 | cosmic/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu2 | disco/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 gadmin-samba | 0.3.2-0ubuntu2 | eoan/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x

c) it generates incorrect configuration for modern samba. Here is the result of testparm on disco right after having run gadmin-samba:
andreas@disco-desktop:~$ testparm

WARNING: socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
This warning is printed because you set one of the
following options: SO_SNDBUF, SO_RCVBUF, SO_SNDLOWAT,
SO_RCVLOWAT
Modern server operating systems are tuned for
high network performance in the majority of situations;
when you set 'socket options' you are overriding those
settings.
Linux in particular has an auto-tuning mechanism for
buffer sizes (SO_SNDBUF, SO_RCVBUF) that will be
disabled if you specify a socket buffer size. This can
potentially cripple your TCP/IP stack.

Getting the 'socket options' correct can make a big
difference to your performance, but getting them wrong
can degrade it by just as much. As with any other low
level setting, if you must make changes to it, make
 small changes and test the effect before making any
large changes.

d) the GUI itself shows errors (see attached screenshot)
e) google search found no other places where this might have moved to. github search only shows two results, both just packaging repositories and several years old (https://github.com/search?q=gadmin-samba&ref=opensearch)

gadmin-samba has a reverse-dependency of gadmintools, which would need to be resolved first.
