I created a list of things to consider including in your site repot, modifi=

Talk about: What is your institution/company/school/personal site, what dri=

what draws you to AFS? why are you attending this year? what are you hoping=
 to share? what are you hoping to learn?
A lot of the following can be expanded with a "why?" as well:
        # of cells
        # of servers (fileserver & database server)
        # of clients
        # of volumes
        # of PT entries
        What do you use for backups
        What do you do for firewall rules & accessibility
        Using DNS, or configuration files for cell information
        How many Kerberos realms do you use
        How many Kerberos realms are trusted by your primary cell
        Do your Kerberos realms share cross-realm trusts with those in othe=
r organizations
        How old is root.cell (creation time from "vos examine root.cell")
        Virtual or physical hardware for servers & what baseline
        How much storage and what kind
