Hi Colm,

Thanks for this! 

>> Kai, is there a reason that the zookeeper + nimbus dependencies are not in the lib
directories of the distributions?
This is a good question I happened to know the answer.

Yes we have already supported various KDC back ends, like the LDAP, ZK ones, but which one
is to bundle in the KDC dist and used by default? It's hard to tell, because each one seems
to need some time to mature. I'd suggest we take time to improve them when received user interests.
So that's why we didn't put all the supported back ends in the dist.

Nimbus is another story, it's for the token support. It's not bundled by default because I'm
not sure most users would want the token support.

Considering this release trouble, now I intend we don't bundle this plugins that involve external
deps heavily, but it's just a thought. We can discuss about the way later. For now less change
much better.

Thanks again.

OK I have made some changes based on my understanding of what is required.
Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Mockito, Hamcrest (junit) are test dependencies and are not required in the NOTICE file or
to specify the license.

We bundle Netty and SLF4J in the distribution. So we have the SLF4J license included in "licenses"
and mentioned in NOTICE, as well as the Netty NOTICE.

From what I can see from kerby-dist/kdc-dist/target/lib and kerby-dist/tool-dist/target/lib,
all of the dependencies are covered.
However, in NOTICE we also have the "nimbus-jose-jwt," NOTICE and the "JLine" NOTICE (from
Zookeeper). However, it appears we don't bundle either of these in the "lib" directories so
I'm not sure why they are there.

Kai, is there a reason that the zookeeper + nimbus dependencies are not in the lib directories
of the distributions?
