  Description     : Userspace utilities for fs-verity

This is fsverity, a userspace utility for fs-verity. fs-verity is a Linux kernel
feature that does transparent on-demand integrity/authenticity verification of
the contents of read-only files, using a hidden Merkle tree (hash tree) associated
with the file. The mechanism is similar to dm-verity, but implemented at the file
level rather than at the block device level. The fsverity utility allows you to
set up fs-verity protected files.

This package will be helpful for handling the fsverity feature on a file from

I want to maintain this package. As DM, I need someone for the initial upload.
