It is getting much better. There are still some minor problems, but
I find it quite usable under NetBSD. I use it with i386 and arm

This just means that the kernel interface is very stable. There is a lot
of work being done with venus (the local client cache manager) and the
server. (Along with all the variety of user space programs needed to
work with Coda.) I read the changelog mail group for the user space
programs (which are not in the NetBSD tree) and there are checkins
It is still not a "click and watch" installation for either the server
or the client. Also, I think pkgsrc is a couple of versions out of
date. But in all, I find coda very interesting!
