[OpenAFS] Happy 20th Birthday to OpenAFS!
Fri, 30 Oct 2020 10:06:20 -0400
Help us celebrate! Twenty years ago, on October 31, 2000, the OpenAFS pro=
ject was created by a small group of individuals at Carnegie Mellon Unive=
rsity, with its corpus owing to the generosity of IBM. In their release,=
IBM cast forth a largely complete version of its AFS 3.6 source tree und=
er the IBM public license.
In the two decades until now, many a developer contributed to the project=
=E2=80=99s success and relevance. We would like to thank any and all con=
tributors, and we hope that OpenAFS will flourish for many years to come!
Here a copy of the original IBM announcement:
