I just looked at the link, because that was my recollection, too.  But it
looks like new life has been breathed into it, and there's even an opensuse-11.2
set of rpms for the stable 1.4.12 (that makes me smile, since that's what we're
running).  It definitely looks like it's worth poking around at.

And, OT - Dark Matter Observed - http://openafs.org/success.html
I missed that somehow back when it was announced.
