I'd like to update the summary status report, and will send it later.

Hi Tom,

Nice interest!! I'm very happy your team could join the effort and this makes great sense
to the young project. 

For the 1st release, the community had some discussion and we're expecting to get it done
as soon as possible. For that we have got many essential things done, I thought we'd have
another summary status report for the progress, and we'll need to see what's the gap for the
release. Emmanuel or Kiran, what's your idea? 

For PKINIT, 50% is my rough estimation (maybe bad). For the release, I had moved the codes
out of the trunk to a branch. We need a sync for the branch to move on as there is quite much
change in the trunk recently. PKINIT is next major feature we'll make it work after the release,
but sure we can resume the effort earlier, in separate branch in parallel, as we do in other
ASF projects. Maybe we could roughly break the goal down into pieces: 1) PKINT in client side;
2) PKINT in KDC side; 3) PKINIT anonymous. Our old plan is to get 1) work first talking to
MIT KDC. To move on, we'll make the PKINIT branch much prepared and let's discuss it in details
maybe in relevant JIRAs. Note we're using this master JIRA for the new project:

Kerby is new to me but I'm quite excited about what it has to offer.  The project goals look
great as an embeddable Java Kerberos implementation is really needed. Having read through
the material on the website, downloaded and built the code, and experimented with it to some
extent, our team is ready to take the next step with Kerby.

I saw the "Kerby Status Summary" that was posted on July 3, but I didn't find anything there
about plans to publish the maven modules to maven central or some other publicly available
maven repository.  Is there a projected date for that?

We have interest in the PKINIT implementation that was reported as about 50% completed as
of July 3. How can I get involved with helping to complete that implementation?

Thank you.
