Generic file system mounting (fsmounting)

What is it?

File systems have their own "proprietary" mount protocol and need to be treated differently : each addition of a file system implies adding specific code on every program which want to use it.
The aim of this project is to replace them by a generic protocol, which could be used for every file system.

Doing so, it could be possible for instance to mount a device without having to specify the file system.

This project is developed by Arnaud Ysmal and mentored by Antti Kantee.
