NAME         top

       projects - persistent project root definition

DESCRIPTION         top

       The /etc/projects file provides a mapping between numeric project
       identifiers and those directories which are the roots of the
       quota tree.  Its format is simply:

            # comments are hash-prefixed
            # ...

       The /etc/projects file is optional, instead xfs_quota(8) can be
       used with the -p argument to specify a project root directly for
       each operation.
