Just F.Y.I....

 I understand that, today, IBM is announcing it will open-source
AFS via the IBM Public Source license..

 Some quotes I've seen:

"IBM announced today the open source contribution of a high-performance file
system technology and talent to strengthen collaboration in the enterprise."

"The contribution of AFS Enterprise File System gives the community a remote
file system with a proven track record that features high performance and
scalability in rigorous computing environments. AFS is designed to protect
data access by authenticating users, providing a very secure, easily
manageable working environment that supports a wide variety of operating
platforms, including Linux."

"IBM will actively work with the open source community to extend AFS
development. In September, 2000 the source code for AFS will be available
through the IBM Public Source License..."

  Might be interesting....
