kpwvalid is used by kapasswd to ensure the new password meets
requirements of the local site. By default, it only tests password
length, but you could add further tests (as we have done on occasion).
If I recall correctly, it only comes into play if it's in the same
directory as the kapasswd program and that directory is only writable by

The 'up' utility is a recursive cp that copies ACLs as well as
files/directories. I presume it's called "up" because by default it has
the nasty side effect of "sucking up" entire volumes mounted under
volumes mounted under volumes and spitting the whole sucked up tree into
the target volume/directory. Later versions in OpenAFS have a switch
('-m' I believe) that causes 'up' to recognize and duplicate mount
points rather than traversing them like plain old directories.
