Hello fellow Fedora developers,
I have relatively recently completed a project to replace the ancient 
and aging and unmaintained mod_auth_kerb Apache module with a new, 
slimmer, more modern and maintained module called mod_auth_gssapi[1].

The plan is to retire mod_auth_kerb soon and get it out of the 
distribution. So this is a heads up that if you have a project that 
somehow relies on mod_auth_kerb it would be nice if you could migrate it 
to mod_auth_gssapi instead, and if you have any issue doing so (missing 
features, incompatibilities, anything) that you let us know so we can 
address whatever problem you may find and accelerate the demise of
