Most distro/OSes have their own packaging system, and it would seem that 
life would be easier for such potential testers if they could install a 
snapshot of openafs within their packaging system.  However, the packaging 
files in our tree are frequently stale (since we are not the canonical 
source for them), so this could place a new burden on our distro 
maintainers if we choose to take this route.

Also, there is a question of what version number to put on snapshots so 
that they will sort properly between "real" releases.
