  Description     : wrapper for (un)mounting and ejecting storage devices

 The gnome-mount package contains programs for mounting, unmounting and
 ejecting storage devices. The goal for gnome-mount is to get the appropriate
 Gnome software (such as gnome-volume-manager and Gnome-VFS) to use his method
 instead of invoking mount/umount/eject or direct HAL invoking methods.
 All the gnome-mount programs utilize the methods on HAL and as such run
 unprivileged. The rationale for gnome-mount is to have a centralized place (in
 GConf) where settings (e.g. mount options and mount locations) are maintained.
 It allows for per user, per drive and per volume settings.

The package will be part of the Debian Utopia project and is available from
