usbmount: automatically mount and unmount USB mass storage devices
I have have written and packaged a script which automatically mounts USB
mass storage devices when they are plugged in, and unmounts them when
they are removed. It is primarily intended for use with USM memory pens.
The package depends on udev and does not assume that the device always
gets the same device node. Please see below for package details.
Would anybody be willing to have a look at my package and/or tell me if
you consider this a good or bad idea in general?
The source package can be downloaded from here:
or by "apt-get source usbmount" with the following sources.list line:
deb-src http://www.zero-based.org/debian packages/source/
Thanks in advance!

Description: Automatically mount and unmount USB mass storage devices
This package automatically mounts USB mass storage devices
(typically USB pens) when they are plugged in, and unmounts them
when they are removed. The mountpoints (/media/usb[0-7] by default),
filesystem types to consider, and mount options are configurable.
When multiple devices are plugged in, the first available mountpoint
is automatically selected.
The script that does the (un)mounting is called by the udev daemon.
