Bug#299713: ITP: cvsfs -- Translator for transparent access to cvs repositories

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : cvsfs
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Stefan Siegl <ssiegl@gmx.de>
* URL             : http://cvsfs4hurd.berlios.de/cvsfs.html
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Translator for transparent access to CVS repositories

cvsfs is a Hurd translator providing transparent (read-only for now)
access to CVS repositories by virtualizing the remote repository in the
local file system.  Once translated, the user can browse around in
directories and view file contents by the means of standard GNU tools.
Contrary to a usual cvs checkout, cvsfs only transmits the necessary
data and not the whole source tree.

This is somewhat similar to the cvsfs (http://cvsfs.sourceforge.net/)
project for Linux using FUSE, modulo the usual differences.  The binary
package name is yet to be decided, pending a Hurd translator naming
convention decision.
