hi edgar,
i added your VFS-based FileSystem implementation 
(http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-55) to the 
contrib directory, thanks.

i would like to add your name to the contributers list
(http://incubator.apache.org/jackrabbit/team-list.html#Contributors).
would you like to have your email address listed too?

thanks again,
stefan
