New development focus for big data is on the Apache Bigtop version of the charms (since that better aligns with community best practices, eliminates a lot of redundant work / code, and ensures we are using version of services and deployment logic that ensure that the components all work together).

For Kakfa, this means you should instead use the charm at https://jujucharms.com/kafka/ but this should function exactly the same as the apache-kafka charm, so the transition should be trivial.

The work to add the option for controlling the bind host.name is currently being reviewed in the following PRs, and should be available as soon as they are signed off on and the charm store is updated (I expect first thing next week):
