Yes, I intend to submit a detailed bug report about this as soon as I find
time. At the moment, I've got people breathing down my neck to do
Bear in mind there are so many variables involved, that the bug report
could turn into a protracted correspondence.
Are you prepared to deal with this? Hopefully the result will be better
Note, that when I say I intend to submit a bug report, I really mean it.
If you look at my archived Debian bug reports (under this email), you'll
see I take bug reporting to Debian seriously. I've submitted several
reports against the Debian AFS packages in the past, though against the
client only. I've never tried to configure a server before.
However, I'm not sure how difficult it will be to get the scripts to work
for me, hence the inquiry to the list. No offense intended.
I appreciate your interest and efforts in making the Debian AFS packages
