If they told you, they would have to kill you :-)

More seriously, Apple is very protective of their
assets, (and some might call it secretive to the
extreme) and access to the developer previews
come with a strict NDA gag order on public
comments regarding any pre-release software
issues and/or features.  There are certainly
rumors of access to the developer program
being removed (for life) for posting pre-release
info.  Apple takes their contracts seriously.

So, if any individual just happens to be running
10.8 with OpenAFS, they will tell you OpenAFS
is working with 10.8 when 10.8 is released.
Sometimes, if you are very careful about watching
commits of many different projects, you might
just happen to notice changes that suggest
future capabilities or integration for as yet
unreleased or unannounced products or
features.  And sometimes, everything just
works, so there is nothing to see (yet).
