When I go through my archives of krbdev I don't see an e-mail with a
subject about krb5_sname_to_principal changing. I do see an e-mail with
the subject "[krbdev.mit.edu #2652] SVN Commit" that mentions this
change (Message-id: <rt-2652-18689.18.2739608882209 at krbdev.mit.edu>). I
would suggest that public interface changes get an e-mail to the krbdev
list with a less generic subject.
