But sometimes app dev impacts krb dev doesn't it (think API
changes/enhancements)?  In addition, there are quite a number krb use
questions on kerberos at mit.edu and it's more likely that app dev
questions may get lost in those threads.

I'm for app dev discussions relating to the krb/gss APIs being on
krbdev at mit.edu unless they obscure krb dev specific threads.
