I've used Scientific Linux for several years. Their yum repository
includes OpenAFS packages. I'm now trying to understand the situation
with OpenAFS packages on CentOS 7.

mentions OpenAFS, but AFAICS there are no AFS packages actually available
through that route in standard CentOS yum repositories? The last
mention I can find of it is

Did this project never move out of the testing phase?

refers to packages that can be installed with yum, however looking
at eg http://openafs.org/dl/openafs/1.6.21, there is no openafs-release*.rpm.
It seems this feature stopped being provided at 1.6.20?


refers to https://cbs.centos.org/repos/storage7-testing/
This has OpenAFS 1.8 from 2018/10.
But the repo name contains "testing", and eg
says not to install anything from cbs.centos.org in production.

Is there any stable yum repository for OpenAFS on CentOS 7?

TIA for any info.
