The AFS Workshop, co-located with the 2004 USENIX Annual Technical
Conference, brings together administrators and programmers to discuss
the development and progress of AFS software, which is growing rapidly
both in use and usability. Previous AFS Workshops have covered such
topics as methods of authentication, backups, client stability and
configuration, replacing ubik, and future work on OpenAFS and Arla. As
some of the key players in both OpenAFS and Arla attend the Workshops,
these discussions can and do affect the course of development.
