Welcome to the anniversary issue of the OpenAFS newsletter, yay! 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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.
The current and past issues of this newsletter are available at http://www.openafs.org/newsletter/
1.5.74 was released on April 22. It includes many fixes and improvements, including updates for FreeBSD 8.0, and an experimental FUSE client among other improvements.
Testing continues for the 1.5.X series on Unix platforms. There is a patch (commit 14195f0f) in git against 1.5.74 that fixes a kernel panic on RHEL 6 Beta. The kernel panic affects OpenAFS versions 1.5.66 through 1.5.74.
On RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 Beta and Fedora 12, there is an issue where the kernel generates large volumes of system log traffic when the AFS disk cache is accessed. RedHat Bugzilla entry #584901 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=584901 is tracking this issue and includes a fix for the issue. The RedHat kernel team is reviewing the patch for possible inclusion in the production release of RHEL 6.
The 1.4.x versions of OpenAFS don't work with Linux kernel 2.6.34. Version 184.108.40.206 will be released to deal with that
Some groundwork has been started for read/write replication based on Vishal Powar's code from the 2008 Google summer of code. The code requires a new RPC protocol between fileserver. A standards proposal is planned for documenting the new protocol.
Adam Megacz reported success while using an unauthenticated 1.4.11 client on an Apple TV.
The seventh Workshop will be held May 24-28, 2010, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We hope to see you there.
Web site: http://workshop.openafs.org/afsbpw10/index.html
We'll be looking forward to meeting you at Illinois this month!
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 http://afs2010.civ.zcu.cz. The conference is being hosted by Centre for Information Technology, University of West Bohemia.
The first Call for Participation has been announced. Please see http://afs2010.civ.zcu.cz/cfp.php for more information.
Informal drafts that haven't been uploaded to the IETF web site:
This draft is in the very early stages. Mike Meffie and Tom Keiser are the current owners of this proposal. A formal specification of Rx is needed as a basis for other IETF proposals.
Discussion on these proposals is welcome and should be done on the AFS3-standardization list at http://michigan-openafs-lists.central.org/mailman/listinfo/afs3-standardization
Status: Third Draft
Status: Active - Waiting on RPC refresh
This proposal will be rewritten with references to the RPC time refresh.
Last update: September 23, 2009
The draft was accepted and published as RFC 5864.
Rxgk is a security layer for AFS which will support strong encryption and authentication through Kerberos v5, GSI and any other GSSAPI security mechanism.
Changes which are considered suitable for the 1.5.x series are in git - look for changes with author email@example.com. A development tree, which will be frequently rebased, is at http://github.com/your-file-system/openafs-rxgk
Last Update: Jan 9, 2010

See the Per-File ACLs section for more info.
Status: Third draft
Last Update: April 17, 2010
I released a new version of the Rx Clear security class I-D the other day. I am hereby soliciting comments on this new version of the draft.
The major changes in this version of the document are:
new introductory section that better explains the relationship between Rx and AFS-3 so that the document is more approachable for novices
additional prose in the security considerations section which better explains how this security object changes the attack vectors, as well as a brief mention of securing rxnull/rxclear with IPsec
flesh out the AFS assigned numbers registrar section with formal specifications for each newly requested registry
change the endpoint identifier type enumeration from 32-bits to 8-bits, as the larger size seemed quite wasteful
mark several security header fields as reserved for future use
I added a number of informative references to Transarc and CMU ITC tech reports
Status: Second Draft
Last Update: April 6, 2010
As new forms of metadata are added to AFS volumes, we are running into limitations with the wire volume metadata structures used by the volume server. This internet draft aims to standardize a tag-length-value (TLV) encoding for arbitrary AFS volume metadata. A new version of this draft was released on April 6th, 2010. Everyone is invited to review and comment on this document. Comments should be sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
Status: Fifth Draft
This draft proposes protocol extensions to support byte-range and mandatory locking.
The first draft was submitted on May 5, 2010.

Gerrit 1092 (initialization volume lock contention) has been merged, which should speed up DAFS startup on fileservers with large numbers of volumes. An important fix has been discovered by Simon Wilkinson in gerrit 1832, which is undergoing review. Several thread-safety fixes to the salvaging code has culminated with gerrit 1865 (undergoing review), which allows for multiple I/O threads in salvages, potentially providing salvage speed improvements. Gerrit 1562 (positional I/O; required for new improvements) is still undergoing review, but has made much recent progress.
IIRC, we merged some XML document updates, but most of the work was on the man pages. People have been doing very well about submitting documentation changes with changes that need documentation. Some improvements to the demand-attach file server documentation were merged, although there are still some undocumented binaries in a demand-attach build (I believe man pages for them are currently being worked on).

This code has been merged into the master branch. It will not appear as a separate project in future newsletters.
Marc Dionne <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The published code on github for per-file ACLs has the following new features:
Capabilities (server and client) are used to determine if file ACL support should be active, both on the server and client
Volume moves, dumps and restores are functional
New Fetch/StoreACL RPCs are defined and used, in anticipation of the RPC refresh. Only the new RPCs will support file ACL semantics.
The github fork is at http://github.com/mdionne/openafs, and the most current work is in the per-file branch, which should be the default branch.

Added Support for NetBSD 5.0, and added conditionals for FreeBSD 8.1 and 9.0.

All recent related changes have been merged, and Debian packages containing the FUSE OpenAFS client should be in Debian soon, thanks to Russ Allbery. Modern libuafs perl bindings are still forthcoming, but should be available before the workshop this month.

Due to lack of resources and development time SetAG has to be considered a discontinued project, sorry. We had no possibility in the last months of working on updating our code to follow changes in openafs so definitely I think that the project has to be rethinked from scratch.
OpenAFS received five slots for the 2010 Google Summer of Code.

AppleDouble files, commonly used to store metadata and extended attributes in filesystems without native support for them, would be supported by all POSIX-compliant OpenAFS platforms. This would provide a means to allow client-side extended attribute support to be added in a backward-compatible manner without requiring changes to the AFS file servers. It also opens the door for future protocol changes to be made, if better accommodation of metadata and extended attributes is desired.

The AFS protocol offers encryption for data transport from client to server. However, that data is stored on the server in cleartext, where it can potentially be read by the administrators of that server. This poses a real world problem for organisations who wish to outsource the provision of their file storage, whilst keeping their data confidential. This project would augment the existing AFS client to support encrypting data blocks before sending them to the file server.

Last year, I have took the project, and as a student of GSoC2009. I have finished partly a task, as Linus and some of the Linux community against implement
pioctl() directly in the kernel. We used other ways to talk to the kernel after we gave up some implementation that have done. There is my project idea and time line at last. My major is distributed file system. As I have some experience of my research and this project, I think I could do it well.

Around the same time the original Linux port of AFS was done, a port to NetBSD was also available. While NetBSD has evolved, the original AFS port did not keep pace. Since then, a port to NetBSD has been highly desired. This project will port the OpenAFS client to run on NetBSD.

A cross platform implementation of the Safe String Library (StrSafe.h) provided by Microsoft. The library will allow multi platform software to use a single library for safe string operations. This will reduce the risk for buffer overflows and will increase code sharing between code for different platforms.
A lot of focus will be put on unit testing of the library thoroughly. This will make it easier to be confident in the correctness of the library.
