Hi ...

  I recently started working for a company that is using AFS to mirror their 
data between various data centers, in the US, Asia and the EU ... the idea is 
that the several thousand servers that are being run have access to identical 
information ..

  Now, depressingly enough, it looks like OpenAFS works on everything *but* BSD 
... :(

    IBM AFS for AIX, Version 3.6
    IBM AFS for Digital Unix, Version 3.6
    IBM AFS for HP-UX, Version 3.6
    IBM AFS for Linux, Version 3.6
    IBM AFS for SGI IRIX, Version 3.6
    IBM AFS for Solaris, Version 3.6

  Does anyone know if there is any serious work being done to get AFS working 
under FreeBSD?  I have a large project that I'm working on that AFS (or 
something equivalent) would be *very* useful for, but we're trying to keep it 
as FreeBSD-pure as possible ...

  Thoughts?  Pointers?
