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.

Okay thanks a lot for share your through about it.

Now we still have a "trouble" where this damned fs is used more and more by
high-end devices like camcorder, camera etc.
So somewhat we should propose something to our end-users to be able to pick
their data and save them to a safer fs.

Now if I can certainly package and make it build (and use it due to my
camcorder :-) I'm not able to choose between the
fuse and the no-fuse one.

Any guidance there, or what I should look at first ?

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.

Seems that the no-fuse is now fully GPL available, since last October.

ps : this time without cross-posting, it's not in factory for the moment.
