Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) is a simple interface for userspace
programs to export a virtual filesystem to the Linux kernel. It also
aims to provide a secure method for non privileged users to create
and mount their own filesystem implementations.
fusermount3 is a program to mount and unmount FUSE filesystems. It
should be called directly only for unmounting FUSE file systems. To
allow mounting and unmounting by unprivileged users, fusermount3
needs to be installed set-uid root.
FUSE is currently maintained by Nikolaus Rath <Nikolaus@rath.org>
The original author of FUSE is Miklos Szeredi <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
