Current activity has been stopped. I still believe very much that the use rights - not distribution rights - lies with the licensee, and the purpose of OpenFuse? is to enable a user to excersise that right. However this is easily misunderstood by many people, who thinks it is supporting piracy. I simply do not have the time and will to spend a lot of time defending against the outcry that this tool will create.
I know that OpenFuse? can easily be modfied and abused to help assist with pirating the IP rights of the legitimate owners and orginal creators, I have no intention to support a piracy effort. In the light of this I have decided not to pursue active development of this application.
OpenFuse? is about granting access to the inventory across the various grids. The application backups up the inventory of all registered accounts, accross various grids into a local database cache. OpenFuse? will try to keep the local backup and the grid based inventory synchronized.
A second component grants access to the backup of the inventory through a local file system, i.e. a filesystem exploerer like nautilus can be used to navigate and modify the inventory. Any change performed on the backup will be synchronized back to the operating system.
Currently OpenFuse? is a Linux only application, I have found no free libarary which will allow me to create a virtual filesystem on windows.
This project is still in alpha. The codebase is kind of usable, in so far as it will connect to a backend server and mount a fuse based file system. The file system can be explored using Nautilus, but nothing much else is currently working.
