There are some of us who are definitely interested in it,
although many of us don't have the spare time to "make it

The freebsd-afs mailing list is pretty much dormant.  That was
setup before openafs happened, iirc, and once openafs got going
all the discussion (that I've seen) has been on openafs lists.

The bsd-related traffic at openafs is sometimes on the main
development lists, and not in the bsd-specific mailing lists.
There has been some recent activity on getting openafs running
on freebsd-current.  In fact, I think that if you get the
source out of the CVS repository, the openafs client should be
pretty close to working on freebsd-current.

I am told the openafs-server will already run on freebsd, but I
have not tried it myself.
