OpenAFS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 1, January 2010

Welcome to the ninth issue of the OpenAFS newsletter. This newsletter summarizes what is happening in the OpenAFS community.

As always, volunteers, patches, bug reports, or any other type of help is greatly appreciated.

Feedback on this newsletter is welcome. The goal is to summarize the various development efforts and news of OpenAFS for the community. Please let Jason Edgecombe <> know what you would like to see out of this newsletter. Any news about AFS-related projects is welcome and may be submitted to Jason for inclusion in the next newsletter.

General OpenAFS Progress

Some discussion took place about which configure and command-line options should be changed before the code is branched for 1.6. The archive is at Based on this discussion, Simon Wilkinson submitted patches to enable bos-restricted mode at compile-time, remove the --disable-large-fileserver configuration option, always enabled AFSDB support inclients, and always have the "vos listvol" command show full output. These patches were accepted and merged into the master git branch.

Code cleanup: Russ Allbery fixed all compiler warnings regarding supergroups onthe i386 platform. Some warnings remain on x86_64 platforms.

Simon's patch to tone down the warnings about syscall probing was accepted into the 1.4.x branch and will be in the next 1.4 release.

1.4.12 release candidate 1 was released on January 12. Testing and feedback is encouraged. Please report any success or failures on the openafs-into or openafs-devel email lists. Bug reports are greatly appreciated.


Annual Best Practices Workshop

Plans are already underway for the seventh Workshop, to be held May 24-28, 2010, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We hope to see you there.

The deadline for proposals is February 1:

European AFS Conference

The date for the 3rd European AFS & Kerberos Conference has been set. The conference will take place in Pilsen, Czech Republic, from September 13 to September 15, 2010. More details are forthcoming and will be posted at The conference is being hosted by Centre for Information Technology, University of West Bohemia.

AFS Protocol Standardization

Informal drafts that haven't been uploaded to the IETF web site:

Rx Spec:

Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the AFS3-standardization list at

PTS Alternate Authentication

Status: Active - Third call for review

Third call for review; I'm gonna ask for a last call later in the month as so far all review comment has been incorporated, unless something comes up.

--Derrick Brashear

AFS Callback Extensions

Status: Active - Needs more discussion

We need to decide whether we're going to wait for the RPC refresh changes before publishing extended callbacks. My belief is that that's the only factor currently delaying this document. The question here, essentially, is whether anyone would deploy extended callbacks before deploying updated RPCs. To date, nobody has said they would do so.

--Simon Wilkinson

DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS

Status: Submitted to IETF

The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider the following document:

- 'DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS ' <draft-allbery-afs-srv-records-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2010-02-05. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Please note that the document has a Normative Downreference to RFC 1183, which is an Experimental RFC.

The file can be obtained via

IESG discussion can be tracked via 89&rfc_flag=0


I've just pushed a new version of the RXGK draft to the Internet Drafts repository. I believe that this draft addresses all of the comments I've received to date, and all of the issues raised at the Edinburgh Hackathon.

Implementation is likely to start shortly - review would be greatly appreciated!

The draft is available from:


AFS3 ACL Rights

Status: Second draft

Andrew Deason has published an IETF draft to provide a common document for discussion of the proposed new ACL rights to prevent users with admin rights on a folder from giving rights to system:anyuser.


Demand-Attach FileServer (DAFS)

Project Contacts:

Bug 124484 (volserver salvages) has finally been fixed, and with that, we are aware of no open DAFS-specific bugs that are critical for production use. The salvager optimization in gerrit 880 is being partially reworked to better accommodate changes in volume/partition locking which is currently in progress. Parts of the new developer documentation have been completed, and should be public soon.


Better Documentation

Project Contacts:

Just the regular maintenance work on the man pages and documentation of new features.


Documentation fixes were made for vos_dump, asetkey, and bos.

*BSD Support

Project Contacts:

I've released cm updates for FreeBSD RELENG_8, most are committed; number of outstanding cm issues is shrinking; a 9-CURRENT update will follow.

I have updated patches for a NetBSD cm port rebased from OpenBSD's , though result isn't 100% working cm, it's a...big improvement. Will send soon for consideration.


Pthreaded Ubik

Project Contact:

After several months of inactivity, several people have started work on fixing the known problems in pthreaded ubik. Contact Steven Jenkins or Andrew Deason if you would like to help with bug fixing and/or testing.

Mac OS X OpenAFS Preference Pane

Project Contact:

The preference pane is now compiled as a multi-platform binary for the ppc, i386, and x86_64 Mac OS X platforms.


Extended Callback Information

Project Contacts:

I understand extended callbacks to be not blocked, but is complicated because rpc refresh work must precede it--a solution would seemingly be opening of a pre-1.6 branch


Kerberos v5 and multiple encryption types

Project Contacts:

rxk5 has been stalled for a bit, but potentially it could be unblocked by opening of a pre-1.6 branch

Projects with no progress or no update

Each project without progress this month is listed along with the month of the last update.
