rofs – The Read-Only Filesystem for FUSE

I love being redundant. Long story short I needed a read-only file system that was:

  1. Lightweight
  2. Underlying filesystem agnositic
  3. Supported XATTR
  4. read XACLs/made access() calls

I didn’t find any I liked, and a remount of the filesystem using NFS wasn’t working as well as I liked (XACL problems). So I wrote rofs, the read-only file system for Fuse.

It requires Fuse API version 25, which shouldn’t be a problem on modern systems. Tested only on Fuse v2.5.3.
