This was announced at linuxworld.  It has been mentioned on the
freebsd-afs mailing list.  I think it is a very interesting
development, we shall have to see how it works out.

Note that there will still be a commercial AFS offering, and
this new open-source AFS option.  The open-source one will
not include some things from the commercial package.  I am
not sure what things will be missing.
