Subject Re: Interest in some code to read DMG files?
Date Sat, 21 May 2016 12:36:33 GMT
Hello Christofer,

there is no low level filesystem image or arhive file code in VFS, so I
think it would be better to add it to commons-compress. We could then
add a VFS provider on top of it for more FS abstractions.

When implementing it, it might be good to adhere to the NIO filesystem
abstraction API, as this is a possible candidate for VFS to envolve to.
(I think commons-compress does not have a abstraction API for this).

Are you planning to support writing/creating images as well?
