OpenAFS Newsletter, Issue 7, November 2009
    Welcome to the seventh issue of the OpenAFS newsletter. This newsletter
    summarizes what is happening in the OpenAFS community.

    As always, volunteers, patches, bug reports, or any other type of help
    is greatly appreciated.

    Feedback on this newsletter is welcome. The goal is to summarize the
    various development efforts and news of OpenAFS for the community.
    Please let Jason Edgecombe <jason@rampaginggeek.com> know what you would
    like to see out of this newsletter. Any news about AFS-related projects
    is welcome and may be submitted to Jason for inclusion in the next

    The current and past issues of this newsletter are available at

    In reply to Derrick's request for a pony, here it is: "u".
    Unfortunately, a Nethack pony is all that we have the budget for. ;)

  General OpenAFS Progress
    OpenAFS 1.5.66 was released on October 24. Key highlights include
    support for Windows 7 and Server 2008R2.

    October's discussion of the AFS lock icon was concluded. The OpenAFS
    provider in Network Identity Manager now includes a lock icon which
    shows OpenAFS status and token status similar to the old AFScrds
    program. The network mount functionality in AFScreds is now shipped
    disabled by default.

    Simon Wilkinson and Derrick Brashear put out a call for code reviewers.
    We need people to review the pending changes in Gerrit. Everyone is
    welcome to review some code. It can help those who aren't familiar with
    the code to become more familiar with it. To get started in reviewing,
    go to <http://gerrit.openafs.org> and login using your OpenID
    credentials. Download the patch and apply it to the latest git tree,
    then compile it and test it. Report your results with each patch in
    Gerrit. If you need help getting started, ask on the openafs-devel list,
    the #openafs IRC channel or the Jabber chat room.

    Mike Meffie proposed a finer set of access controls to prevent users
    with admin rights on a folder from giving overly permissive access to
    other users or groups. This is part of a effort to find a safer way to
    deal with public facing AFS sites. We want to encourage people to chime
    in with their ideas and reach a general census so we can move forward
    and improve AFS.

   Annual Best Practices Workshop
    Plans are already underway for the seventh Workshop, to be held May
    24-28, 2010, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We hope
    to see you there.

   European AFS Conference
    The date for the 3rd European AFS & Kerberos Conference has been set.
    The conference will take place in Pilsen, Czech Republic, from September
    13 to September 15, 2010. More details are forthcoming and will be
    posted at <http://afs2010.civ.zcu.cz>.

   AFS Protocol Standardization
    Two more proposals came out of the Edinburg AFS Hackathon, but haven't
    been discussed much on the afs-standardization list:

    *   http://www.dementia.org/~shadow/draft-brashear-afs3-pts-extended-nam

    *   http://openafs.sinenomine.net/~tkeiser/draft-tkeiser-rxrpc-sec-clear

    Mike Meffie reformatted Nickolai Zeldovich's draft Rx protocol
    specification (from 2002) as an Internet Draft and, with his permission,
    is sharing it.

    The reformatted document is available via http and AFS at:



    [Ed.: I give my thanks to Simon Wilkinson for providing an excellent
    summary of the current status of the proposals. Most of this section was
    taken from one of Simon's emails.]

    Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the
    AFS3-standardization list at

   AFS Callback Extensions

    Status: Active

    We need to decide whether we're going to wait for the RPC refresh
    changes before publishing extended callbacks. My belief is that that's
    the only factor currently delaying this document. The question here,
    essentially, is whether anyone would deploy extended callbacks before
    deploying updated RPCs. To date, nobody has said they would do so.

    --Simon Wilkinson

   DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS

    Status: Active

        I think this is pretty much done from our perspective. In this
        draft's case, I think it's perfectly fair to get it published
        through the IETF, as an individual submission, given it updates a
        protocol element (AFSDB records) that are already specified in an

        We have two problems that are delaying this, and other initiatives:

        The first is that there has been no movement since last year on
        establishing a clearer footing for the work done on this
        [afs3-standardization] list. The draft I published suggests that the
        g.c.o registrars bootstrap the process, but so far they haven't had
        sufficient time to do so. At some point, if they remain unable to
        get it off the ground, we're going to have to come up with another

        There is also a general issue about how to publish the wider set of
        AFS protocol documents - the current proposal is that they go
        through the independent submission stream, and eventually appear as
        RFCs. To date, I don't think we've approached anyone with regards to
        this plan, and the whole RFC publishing processing is going through
        significant change at present. We need to resolve this before things
        like extended callbacks can move forwards.

        --Simon Wilkinson

        I've received no responses since version -01 of the draft, so I was
        about to ask about what the next step is. Should I make a last call
        for comments here and then approach the IESG about publication?

   Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)
    Project Contacts:

    *   Andrew Deason <adeason@sinenomine.net>

    *   Tom Keiser <tkeiser@sinenomine.net>

    *   Mike Meffie <mmeffie@sinenomine.net>

    A fix for 124484 (volserver salvages) is in gerrit 787 and is undergoing
    review. We believe this to be the last 'critical' DAFS issue, so we
    would encourage that anyone with an interest in using DAFS test DAFS
    with that fix. There are still other (mostly performance-related) issues
    we are continuing to work on, but we know of no other critical
    DAFS-specific problems.


   Mac OS X OpenAFS Preference Pane
    Project Contact:

    *   Claudio Bisegni <Claudio.Bisegni@lnf.infn.it>

    The only update is the automatic link creation on the Desktop for custom
    paths. Now, I'm trying to see if I can use FUSE to make these paths
    mountable as real volumes.


   Better Documentation
    Project Contacts:

    *   Russ Allbery <rra@stanford.edu>

    *   Jason Edgecombe <jason@rampaginggeek.com>

    Several man page updates have gone into the tree since last month, but I
    don't think there's been any significant progress on the larger

    One useful documentation project that we could ask for volunteers to
    work on is writing man pages for the new binaries that were added as
    part of the demand-attach file server work.


   Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types
    Project Contacts:

    *   Matt Benjamin <matt@linuxbox.com>

    *   Marcus Watts <mwd@umich.edu>

    Simon and I discussed some of the issues yesterday via XMPP. We agree
    there are lots of things Marcus and I can do, but a lot of things become
    easier and more useful to do when upstream is ready start thinking about
    rxk5 in detail. Simon pointed out that once 1.6 branches, rxk5 patches
    can flow onto head--and that means that folks can start reviewing
    changes for potential merge. Even if it takes a while to get through
    them, that's the most efficient process to be on, and the sooner we can
    start it, the more productive we can be.


   S3 Front-end for AFS
    Project Contacts:

    *   Fabrizio Manfredi <fabrizio.manfredi@gmail.com>

    *   Claudio Bisegni <Claudio.Bisegni@lnf.infn.it>

    Small description of S3AFS:

    First of all, Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that
    can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from
    anywhere on the web.

    S3AFS is a web application, it provides a local implementation of the S3
    service. This can be useful if you want to make use of the Amazon S3 web
    service interface but host the storage on your own OpenAFS cell. The
    first step of the project is mapping the OpenAFS resources to a S3
    client, then you can read your file and directory as a key of a S3
    bucket. The second step is to use OpenAFS as an S3 backend.

    We have a basic implementation, without authentication and authz, we now
    start to understand how to put Authentication (SetAG) in the java multi
    thread env.


    We have a proof of concept, which was presented at the Workshop in Rome,
    and we have finished the design and started coding in Java for the
    production release. We hope to release a preview in December without ACL
    handling. We have to fix some compilation problems in the Java lib in
    the 1.5.x, which has not been submitted yet.


   Active Directory Backend for Ptserver
    Project Contacts:

    *   Fabrizio Manfredi <fabrizio.manfredi@gmail.com>

    *   Claudio Bisegni <Claudio.Bisegni@lnf.infn.it>

    Ptserver-Ng is a custom implementation of the ptserver with an Active
    Directory backend instead of Ubik db. Today, more institutions ask to me
    a more generic interface in special way for ldap connection. The new
    project is focused on a plugin architecture for a multi-backend
    implementation. The first step is to create a more generic database API
    (ptdb) and move all the ubik code into this new infrastructure. Second
    step is to create a proxy read/write backend and more generic AD (read
    only) backend.

    Status : interface definition (ptdb api)

    We have finished the interface definition, we start to move the existing
    ubik code, no release date are available.

   Virtual Machine Images
    Project Contact:

    *   Fabrizio Manfredi <fabrizio.manfredi@gmail.com>

    I have created a set of virtual machines. In this way, everyone can try
    and test OpenAFS without installing it.

    You can find the VM at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/s3afs/files/


   Pthreaded Ubik
    Project Contact:

    *   Steven Jenkins <steven.jenkins@gmail.com>

    Steven has changed employers and email addresses.

    There are no updates to the Pthreaded Ubik project. It will not appear
    in future newsletters unless there is an update.

   Userspace cache manager
    Project Contact:

    *   Andrew Deason <adeason@sinenomine.net>

    I'm in the middle of adding support for ACL and mountpoint manipulation
    (and in general, making pioctl emulation work). Once that is working to
    a certain degree, I should be able to work on getting this suitable for
    merging in mainline. If anyone wants to use this before then, just ask.

    I'd also like to note that apparently it may be possible to emulate PAGs
    in linux userspace. So, a fully-featured FUSE client is not as
    impossible as I once thought, and may someday exist.


   Projects with no progress or no update
    *   Disconnected AFS support

    *   Rx OSD integration & Raw Vicep Access in Clients

    *   Extended Callback Information
