I may be looking into AFS more for my workplace. If this comes to pass, I
may end up making an effort to get it working on FreeBSD as a hobby during
my spare time.
Some things to look at that I've also been poking at:
* Apparently the newest development (1.3.x) OpenAFS servers will work on
FreeBSD, but the client is not production quality.
* /usr/ports/net/arla implements a client that supposedly works on
FreeBSD, though I have yet to test it.
* OpenAFS is looking for people interested in making their client work on
Hope this helps. I'd like to see FreeBSD get much better AFS and general
clustering/internetworking support. For example, easier to configure LDAP
and Kerberos. Must.. compete.. with.. Active.. Directory...
