--------------------------------------

I happened to come across this JIRA again. Did we finish swapping Apache DS for Kerby? I still
see references to Apache DS in the hadoop-auth pom.xml.

I can help by testing compilation of downstream apps with proposed patches.

> As discussed in the mailing list, we’d like to introduce Apache Kerby into Hadoop.
Initially it’s good to start with upgrading Hadoop MiniKDC with Kerby offerings. Apache
Kerby (https://github.com/apache/directory-kerby), as an Apache Directory sub project, is
a Java Kerberos binding. It provides a SimpleKDC server that borrowed ideas from MiniKDC and
implemented all the facilities existing in MiniKDC. Currently MiniKDC depends on the old Kerberos
implementation in Directory Server project, but the implementation is stopped being maintained.
Directory community has a plan to replace the implementation using Kerby. MiniKDC can use
Kerby SimpleKDC directly to avoid depending on the full of Directory project. Kerby also provides
nice identity backends such as the lightweight memory based one and the very simple json one
for easy development and test environments.
