      Description

      SRB file storage has been outdated/unmaintained for many years.

      https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSDOC5x/Configuration+Reference#ConfigurationReference-SRB%28StorageResourceBrokerage%29FileStorage

      In June 2015, Peter Dietz asked on mailing lists if it was still in use at any institutions, and no one responded:
      https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/dspace-tech/SRB/dspace-tech/sedtn52A7xg/Myjs_cYEBwAJ

      Since then, support for SRB has been removed by the implementation of DS-1117. This ticket was created just to reference the removal of this feature.
