Most distro/OSes have their own packaging system, and it would seem that
life would be easier for such potential testers if they could install a
snapshot of openafs within their packaging system. However, the packaging
files in our tree are frequently stale (since we are not the canonical
source for them), so this could place a new burden on our distro
maintainers if we choose to take this route.
Also, there is a question of what version number to put on snapshots so
that they will sort properly between "real" releases.
