      Description

      As of 0.11.0.0, Kafka Connect will be able to automatically create its internal topics using the new AdminClient (see KAFKA-4667). However, it still relies upon the broker auto-creating topics to which source connector records are written.

      Kafka Connect should use the AdminClient to explicitly create the new topics before writing the first source record to a new topic, and it should allow the connector the opportunity to customize the topic-specific settings for those new topics. As such, it will require a change in the public API (configs and/or framework) for source connectors and thus will require a KIP.
