	I apologize in advance if this is an answered FAQ and I just can't find 
the reference to it.

I thought I saw a negative comment on one of these lists about putting 
/usr/local on AFS.  If memory serves, the message had a tone that there 
were better ways of dealing with a common /usr/local tree (package tools, 
updating per machine, etc. etc.) and that /usr/local in AFS was a 
deprecated practice.

So, at the risk of starting something here, I am going to ask what other 
peoples experiences are with placing /usr/local in AFS and sharing among 
machines of same @sys type (much like the AdminGuide suggests).

I don't want to create too large of a thread so if this has been discussed, 
and there are pointers to studies/whitepapers/etc., please feel free to 
post/send links to me.

Thanks in Advance,
