The source code for AFS has been released to the public.  It should now be possible to add support to NetBSD for AFS.  I'd like it, pretty please. ;-)

An internal JPL email on the subject follows which includes a URL for the relevant source code.

IBM planning to release the source code was announced about a month
ago, but now the source code is there.

Considering all the traffic on the list about AFS for linux this
ought to be a positive note. Hopefully all the big distribution
companies will quickly adopt afs into their respective distros.

I speak for myself not JPL.

Not really a problem, just a feature request.
See description.
