For features that need to be tested. But here, your initial message was
"kadmin-remote branch is created for the remote kadmin support work.".
Does not look like a 'feature addition' to me.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing about creating branches for
experimentation, or for fixes done on existing released, but here, it's
not clear we are in any of those two possibilities...

> If you remembered, in previous discussion before, I suggested we use trunk for development,
and cutting separate branch for RC2 release. 
I don't think we need to cut a branch for a release. The maven build
*will* create them automatically. Those wanting to work on teh code
while it's being released can create a branch and merge it back to the
trunk at will.

What I don't get here is why do we need a branch for something that
deserves to be in trunk ? Or maybe it does not deserve to be in trunk,
but I don't see why. Can you explain us ?

thanks !
