pmount ("policy mount") is a wrapper around the standard mount program
which permits normal users to mount removable devices without a
matching /etc/fstab entry.
Be warned that pmount is installed setuid root.
I packaged that package for ivman since it plays well with ivman
in lightweight environments. However I don't plan to use it
regularly (I use gnome-mount instead) so I would prefer if
somebody who use it for real could co-maintain (or maintain)
it. It doesn't mean that I won't maintain it seriously, but
I may not be able to understand perfectly the issues.
I'm interested as a newer pam_usb uses it to mount devices. I could co-maintain.
