Sushanth Sowmyan commented on HIVE-8165:

Given that we intend to introduce a HDFS-based-event log that'll take over the 
metastore-based one (so that events can be kept for longer than 1day), it's 
possible that we may want to disable the metastoreclient interfaces at some 
point - that's why I wanted to mark those as LimitedPrivate - so as to not have 
to need to support it after it's disabled(if it's disabled)

As  to ReplicationTask and the HCatClient calls themselves, I guess we can skip 
the LimitedPrivate as long as we have the Evolving - they were an extension of 
the fact that they relied on the metastore-side eventlog.

> We need to make a couple of changes for annotating the recent changes.
> a) Marking old notification listener in HCatalog as @Deprecated, linking 
> instead to the new repl/ module.
> b) Mark the new interfaces as @Evolving @Unstable
