    > the upstream Accumulo project cannot take responsibility for the dependencies
    But why? I feel like this is missing from the argument. There are some transitive dependencies
which we need to interact with HDFS and YARN that (I assume) you're pointing at, but that
isn't all of our dependencies.
    We can't get around needing certain ones for HDFS, YARN and ZK which I agree with you
on. However, we still have a known set of dependencies that Accumulo itself needs. We as a
community _should_ be aware of security concerns and make sure that we tell users "hey, you
should update to a newer version because of some bug or CVE". Furthermore, we don't need to
be shackled to the dependencies that HDFS et. al require. We can relocate the dependencies
_we use_ and reduce the effort that is required to deploy Accumulo.

reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
