Would the text of this agreement be available anywhere (in a way that 
can be referenced, i.e without NDA)? My interest would be to see how far 
this agreement limits technical evolution for OpenAFS in the medium-term 

(I have seen 
- but that seems to cover only the use of "OpenAFS" in the foundation name).

Thanks in advance,
