This is my effort to create a unionfs filesystem implementation which is way more flexible than the current in-kernel unionfs solution.

I'm open to patches, suggestions, whatever... The preferred way is the mailing list at {{{unionfs-fuse (at) googlegroups (dot) com}}} or see [[http://groups.google.com/group/unionfs-fuse|unionfs-fuse on Google Groups]].

If you want to contact me and me only see the [[Contact]] page on how to reach me...

If you've sent me something and think it takes me too long to answer, go check [[UndeliverableMail]] page. I might have problems sending mail to you...


== Why choose this stuff ==

 * The filesystem has to be mounted after the roots are mounted when using the standard module. With unionfs-fuse, you can mount the roots later and their contents will appear seamlesly
 * You get caching which speeds things up a lot for free
 * You get nice stats (optional)
 * Advanced features like copy-on-write and more

== Why NOT choose it ==

 * Compared to kernel-space solution we need lots of useless context switches which makes kernel-only solution clear speed-winner (well, actually I've made some tests and the hard-drives seem to be the bottleneck so the speed is fine, too)
