I work with Red Hat and it pains me to see so much dislike in the 
community. I cannot comment on the downstream directions taken by whoever 
oversees such packages (perhaps because we have agreements about Azure 
with Microsoft) but it pains me to see this. There are a lot of great and smart 
OpenSource developpers in that company (I'm not one of them, I just a 
consultant) and lots of redhatters are contributing to upstream Fedora 
packages (where packages such as that pam_krb5 src.rpm is coming from).

This is also why I've attempted (in my limited time) to build rpms for 
samba AD-DC for RHEL/Centos so people could still get a working DC on 
RHEL/CentOS. Unfortunately, I lack the time to spend more time on this but 
all of my modified SPEC files and rpms are in the URL below.

All I know is that I've been runnin an AD/DC (for my family) for over 3 
years on RHEL and it's been running flawlessly. (this was the initial 
reason I got into re-packaging this on RHEL).

Would the following URL be useful?

http://vince.cojot.name/dist/samba has all my rpmbuilds for 4.14 (el8) en 
< 4.13.x (el7) are there.. I still haven't had time to work on 4.15 but 
might try shortly..
