Description Matthias Clasen 2009-04-01 12:35:08 EDT
The gvfs virtual filesystem framework (the successor of gnome-vfs) that is used by the GNOME deskop and other GTK+ based desktop environments is using fuse to make all of its filesystems (including things like cameras, bluetooth devices, etc) available to POSIX applications. This allows non-GNOME applications such as OpenOffice to take advantage of the gvfs functionality.

For questions about the fuse support in gvfs, contact:

Given that this is in Fedora, and the only way to cause it not to ship would be to rebuild a bunch of packages to cut the dependency chain, marking as MODIFIED.

The feature requested has already been accepted into the upstream code base
planned for the next major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

When the next milestone release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is available,
please verify that the feature requested is present and functioning as
