Re: [opensuse-packaging] exfat-nofuse in factory or at least consolidated in filesystem
Hi Bruno,

For the shake, it would be wonderful to synchronize the different offer we
have on obs about exfat.

For example have the best of dkms alternative available here
or native

and the fuse exfat-utils

I just packaged those because I was under the impression that exfat
would be a good filesystem for external storage portable across OSs
(Hint: it is not), so I'm not really using it anymmore.

I can submit it to filesystems, but I will certainly not maintain it,
since I am not using it.

Would be nice to have all effort submitted to filesystems repository and then
pushed to factory.
Also the different packagers could work together offering a perfect need for
our end-users community

For Factory / openSUSE, the legal limbo in which all this exFAT stuff is
hanging is probably a problem.
