Your age is showing, Todd. :-)
It's been many years and many AFS versions since a quorum was required for
_read_ access to either the VLDB or PRDB. So a lack of quorum will impact
things like creating, moving, and releasing volumes, creating and modifying
users and groups, etc, but will not prevent access (even write access) to a
volume that is otherwise online.
