Hi! If you feel there is enough interest for this package, please go ahead. We could then co-maintain it!

Hi, would you mind if I adopted and moved this package to [community], making it an official package?

Don't forget to have a look at [0] for potential breaking changes.

Complete revamp of package.


- "zookeeper" service file is now named "kafka-zookeeper"
- service "kafka-zookeeper" is automatically started by service "kafka"
- package files now live in /usr/share/kafka rather than /opt
- "backup" files declared
- …


- run with some other user than root
- use dependency on package "zookeeper"

Feedback welcome :)

Could someone with more experience take a look at the services and see if theres a better way to handle the configuration files
