We (our group here) are quite happy you and the rets of the OpenAFS team
are doing such a good job and spend time which is not meant to be spend
at work for the project.
And that fix for login was faster than we could reproduce on a second
machine :-) THATs fast developement. A big thank you for this.
I know the nature of test builds and try to test as good as we can -
it=C2=B4s simply we do not got all the ressources and time like you got.
We do not want to put pressure on you, we take what is given happily and
so far OpenAFS got better every release and more stable and useable.
