Do you mean under openafs.git, or something else? I plan on looking at
that CVS repo and putting the changes into git somewhere, but I hadn't
yet thought that it would go into openafs.

No, the licensing seems pretty permissive. I thought there was some
desire to have some of the simpler tooling separate from OpenAFS itself,
like some of the other stuff in openafs-contrib. The README text makes
it pretty clear that at least the original authors wanted that; I
thought that jhutz and some users might agree with that, as well.
