Remove krb5-appl

Summary

Remove src:krb5-appl (produces packages krb5-appl-clients and krb5-appl-servers) from the distribution.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 27
  • Last updated: 2017-06-21
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

These packages will likely be officially deprecated upstream soon, and probably should not be used in most cases anyway. It contains legacy kerberized utilities, like rsh. There are no packages which depend them. There have been no changes to this package in Fedora since 2013, and no new capabilities upstream since 2010 when it branched from the mainline krb5 distribution.

Benefit to Fedora

Remove obsolete packages that no longer provide the level of security we would like.
