From my quick understanding, HDFS-9395 is more like a bug fix and improvement for audit logging instead of incompatible changes. We mark incompatible probably because the audit log behavior could be corrected/updated in some exception cases. I think it still belongs to 2.7.3 scope.
Kuhu and Kihwal, any comments here?
Thanks,

Junping

HDFS-9395 is an incompatible change:

a) Why is not marked as such in the changes file?
b) Why is an incompatible change in a micro release, much less a minor?
c) Where is the release note for this change?
