IMO after seven years in existence - all software needs to be rewritten or adapted or retired.

Time to retire PicketBox and PicketLink from WildFly. Better alternatives exist hopefully.

There have also be complains from community why we downgraded the PicketLink in WF10
and now there is a migration problem from WF9 --> 10. [1]

If we remove it, we would just keep the mgmt stub so we can still manage mixed-domain with older versions.
Similarly as we did with osgi & friends back in the day.
It was already deprecated in 10, so we could remove it in 11 or later.

    On the last few days I've been discussing with Tomaz about the possibility to remove PL from WFLY.

    The reasons for that are:

        - PicketLink was deprecated in favor of Keycloak. See [1] and [2].
        - Fixes are only being done to product version by GSS/SEG teams.
        - Most PL IdM and Federation capabilities such as SAML (plus a plenty of other things) are now available from Keycloak.

    I think we can still provide an installer (we already have that) that could be used to enable PL to a WFLY installation. That would help people using PL to continue with their designs. But for PL Federation and Subsystem, Keycloak should be the best way to go.

    Any comments ?
