Default Bug#580904: ITP: jigdofuse -- A FUSE based fs providing images offered by jigdo files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Mateusz Poszwa <old4@o2.pl>
Owner: Mateusz Poszwa <old4@o2.pl>

* Package name : jigdofuse
Version : 0.5
Upstream Author : Mateusz Poszwa <old4@o2.pl>
* URL : http://old.pl.pl/src/c/JigdoFUSE/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C
Description : A FUSE based fs providing images offered by jigdo files

JigdoFUSE is a virtual filesystem which is populated with images
offered by jigdo files. When an image is read JigdoFUSE generates
its contents based on jigdo files (jigdo and template)
and a set of parts. When a part is not found under path from
jigdo file, it fills space normally occupied by the part with zeros,
so most p2p programs recognise the part as missing.

The aim of JigdoFUSE is to provide a way of mirroring ISO images
atop a packages mirror without the need of actually storing them.
Instead of 680MB ISO image a 20MB template is stored.
Disk space usage is much lower, but comes at cost of CPU time
and some RAM space.

I have already packaged it, but lintian still reports errors
(I need to write a manpage) and I need a sponsor to upload it.
The project is still immature and not properly tested
(I use it and it works stable, but suffers from a race condition
in FUSE when readahead-collect is active).
