Subject RE: [Kerberos] re-organizing the module structure

Appreciate if we could accelerate on this. It makes a lot sense to make the project comfortable
for all of us. Thanks!

Hi Kiran,

Thanks for taking care of this!

Looks like we could re-organize the project much better if we get the naming issue resolved
first. For example, if Kerby is used, maybe ‘kerby-asn1’ would be a choice, which allows
it to be used in other contexts/projects without worrying about polluting their global namespace.
yes, indeed, we all should come to a consensus on this naming issue
so I request all to cast their vote/opinion here

Just a quick reply. Will provide my thoughts for each item thoroughly late today.

I suggest we reorganize the modules under directory-kerberos.

All the modules under 'contrib' are essential components hence must be
moved to the project root directory.

Add a new folder 'mech' or 'mechanisms' and move various auth mechanisms
like 'pkix', 'token' etc there.

Move 'haox-kdc/kdc-server' to the root level and the create a new folder
at the root level to hold all the backend implementations (and the ldap-identity-backend
will be moved here).

'contrib' folder can be used to store any contribution from other parties.

And, we should drop the project prefix from the folder names and set
that prefix in <artifactId> in the respective module's pom.xml.

For example, 'haox-asn1' should be renamed to 'asn1' and change the pom.xml
to contain <artifactId>haox-asn1</artifactId>
