Subject [jira] Resolved: (VFS-92) FUSE integration
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 05:35:23 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-92?page=all ]

Mario Ivankovits resolved VFS-92.
---------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I think this is totally out of scope of VFS.

The reasons are:

1) FUSE is GPL/LGPL which is a nono for ASF projects. In this case we have to build a JNI
bridge - so we really have to link against the FUSE libraries
2) many of VFS's filesystems are already available (http://fuse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FileSystems)
- so FUSE wont benefit from our VFS
3) Performance will be poor - compared to the native implementations

I admit, such a project has a coolnesfactor, but I think its not very practical, though, hey,
you can start up a project on sourceforge :-)

Sorry!
Ciao,
Mario

of new file system drivers for the GNU/linux and FreeBSD platforms.
