Dear Satya,

Thanks very much for your reply! If my coding skills or my bank  
account were any match for my enthusiasm for open source distributed  
file systems, then I would certainly be coding for or donating to this  
project. Hell, if file systems were like women, then this one would  
have me on my knees in an instant! Why so little attention has been  
paid to her is beyond me.

As things stand, though, all I can do is learn about Coda and help  
spread the word. I'm a slow learner and am also highly undisciplined,  
but I'm persistent and I like to think that I have reasonable writing  
skills. In the past year, I've written a number of HOWTOs for systems  
based on MIT Kerberos V, OpenLDAP and OpenAFS  
(, but I look forward to adding  
some involving Coda.

After that I'll try to roll it out across some actual server machines  
and then who knows. Judging from the current state of the Coda  
website, by that time maybe I can help out there as well. By the way,  
a series of Debian packages should definitely be created for Coda!  
That, combined with a few fresh HOWTOs and some improved documentation  
should certainly get it more attention.

I already have and will continue to look for people to contact who  
might be interested in this project, but otherwise that's it. I'll do  
what I can and thanks once again for your reply.
