Yes. At some point there was an openafs-1.4.5-rhel4.2.src.rpm on the 
site which I downloaded and used to build packages.  At some later 
point, after I had rebuilt several VM guests, that package was gone (and 
I didn't notice) and only a rhel4.1.src.rpm was present, which I 
subsequently used to build newer kmod packages which won't install.

Will you be putting up 1.4.6 srpms?  I realize that there have been no 
code changes from 1.4.5, but you're releasing binaries with a new 
version number so it would be really nice to have the srpm since I 
assume client fixes will be patched in 1.4.6, not 1.4.5.
