2. athena release issues

consideration of v4/v5 compatibility and Athena migration is pertinent,
but it shouldn't be an overbearing concern.  Word of mouth from "on
high" is that there will be regular athena-type releases after the
current Athena merges into IS.

3. future (post-Athena involvement) of Kerberos

John would like to get Kerberos out the door by the end of 1990.

some discussion about how to deal with Kerberos, industry expectations,
who takes on the maintenance role after that time.
Some possibilites that were discussed: NetServ gets it, OSF gets it,
some other University, a Consortium a la X.
NO FIRM ANSWERS known at this time.

4. Thought for the day: "generality is painful in general" -- Ted

5. next meeting will be scheduled at a later date.
