Hi guys,

I did a search on google, and it didn't turn much up on this subject, so 
I'm asking here.  I hope I don't step on any toes, but...

Why doesn't OpenAFS merge with Arla?

It is said arla has a stable client, and 2.6 support without syscall 
table hacks.

Are the BSD and IPL licenses compatible?  That way, you could pick and 
choose the parts from arla you want, and split on file boundaries.  If 
not then BSD (without the advertising clause) is supposedly compatible 
with just about anything.  So could it be "transformed" into IPL 
licensed code?

How production ready is their client (especially the Linux kernel module)?

OK, that's probably enough questions for now.
