  Description     : advanced multi layered unification filesystem version 4.x

Aufs is a stackable unification filesystem such as Unionfs, which unifies
several directories and provides a merged single directory.
In the early days, aufs was entirely re-designed and re-implemented
Unionfs Version 1.x series. After
many original ideas, approaches and improvements, it
becomes totally different from Unionfs while keeping the basic features.
See Unionfs Version 1.x series for the basic features.
Recently, Unionfs Version 2.x series begin taking some of same
approaches to aufs's.

I'm intending to package the version 4.x for Debian. The module
should use dkms to be build as kernel module.

I hope to do the work as part of the filesystems project on Alioth:

I need a sponsor for the package.
