Subject Re: Commons VFS support for Amazon S3?
Date Sat, 24 Dec 2011 01:23:32 GMT
I recall seeing S3 mentioned on the dev list a while ago, probably in reference to this project
and whether we wanted to include it in VFS. It seems to be based on vfs2.  I didn't investigate
to see what licenses its dependencies are under, but this project is now Apache licensed.
