Sorry to resurrect an old thread here, but I recently got grilled on
this point and was embarrassed at being unable to give a precise
ansewr... assuming that performance is no concern whatsoever, what
exactly are the data integrity issues that come up when using AFS to
store Cyrus data?
When I mentioned this to some folks who were considering adopting AFS,
it scared them -- I assume the thoughts going through their heads were
"if AFS can corrupt my Cyrus messages in plain flat files, it could
corrupt all the rest of my data!"
