AFS & Kerberos Workshop

Sitting in Atlanta waiting for a delayed flight on my way back from the AFS & Kerberos Best Practices Workshop at SLAC.

The conference was a little lower-key this year, as accounting restrictions presented commercial sponsorship & the provision of food at meal breaks. Whilst this perhaps reduced the amount of mingling that took place, it didn't really reduce the quality of the talks - which were another strong mixture of case-studies and development reports. Another great effort from Derrick, Jeff, Russ,Tracy, Alf (and the sadly missing Moose).

The talks from the workshop are up on their web pages at Of particular interest to us are Kristen's talk on NDMP, Russ's talk on his pam modules (which I hope we'll be able to migrate to using before our next client platform release), Love's description of rxgk, Matt and Marcus's byte range locking, and Derrick's version of hostafsd.

There was also some talk of testing and build farms, which I hope I'll be able to find a way to help with.
