I thought that I was going to see openafs-fileserver and
openafs-fileserver-dafs packages (or openafs-dafs, etc), but I'm
obviously not the one making them...
I thought the last time I was in a conversation about this, the big
problem was what to do about the BosConfig conversion that must happen
to support DAFS (or roll back). Does that have any good solution?
