Some feedback from testing by our Mac support:

The 1.6.6 OpenAFS installer for OS X 10.9 refuses to install under 
10.10. The installer can be tweaked, the following issues have been 

- OpenAFS does not obtain a token at login

- obtaining a token via the OpenAFS menu does not work (it will ask for 
username and password even if you have a valid kerberos ticket)

- aklog on the command line gives a proper token

I could browse directories and look at files, no further testing was done.

Hope this helps,
