> Stop requiring scribe transport for zipkin

>                 Key: CAMEL-12276
>                 URL:
>             Project: Camel
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: camel-zipkin
>            Reporter: Adrian Cole
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 2.22.0
> Scribe is a long since archived transport originally from Facebook. Unfortunately, when
the zipkin camel integration was originally made, it defaulted to the historical scribe transport
as opposed to the much wider supported http transport. Scribe is disabled by default on zipkin
for a while, due to it pinning to old libraries.
> Due to lack of maintenance here (especially when compared to opentracing), updates
around zipkin don't occur organically. In fact http wasn't added until very recently eventhough
it predated the camel integration! []
> This lack of keeping up is kindof ok when measured in months, but when measured in years,
it has a bad effect. For example, we've been requests (only because of camel) to add scribe
into new libraries. It isn't fair to Zipkin to have to add extra burden just because of lack
of progression here. We are mostly volunteer run. If we have extra time, it would be better
to use that to address more serious concerns, such as the modeling approach or old apis used
> Please deprecate and plan to quickly remove the scribe transport. If that isn't a viable
option for you, please deprecate and remove your zipkin support, so that we can do it in a
more sustainable and more supportable way externally, but without the confusion caused by
conflating scribe with zipkin's port.
