FUSE - filesystem in userspace



Hi all, I've been sent here from the fedora-general mailing list. I just
would like to ask people who can to consider fuse (filesystem in userspace)
and sshfs for inclusion into fedora. They both are available at

http://fuse.sourceforge.net

The latter is a particularly comfortable way to access files on any
sshd-enabled machine (i.e. any linux machine nowadays) as if they where
local, without superuser intervention, without other support on the server
and with a simple and "just works" feeling (you only have to type "sshfs
user host:remotedir localdir"). 

Fuse is used in a wide range of projects, some is listed at:

http://fuse.sourceforge.net/filesystems.html

Including this in fedora would give huge visibility to it, which is needed
for people to easily distribute userspace filesystems they create - btw
debian and gentoo already include it so that addition to fedora would make
it almost a de-facto standard, and a safe bet for filesystems coders to
just list "install fuse from your vendor" as a prerequisite.

Bye

Vincenzo
