Subject: [DISCUSS] Kafka 3.0

Hi all,

First, I agree with what has been discussed. Having 3.x as the bridge
releases and entirely removing ZK in 4.0 makes total sense.

Second, what would you think about removing the auto topics creation
in 3.0? It is not recommended to use it anymore and that could simplify
a bit our path towards removing ZK. We could deprecate it in 2.6 already
and remove it in 3.0. If you guys generally agree, I could draft a KIP and
kick off the discussion.
