Virtual filesystem for flickr online photosharing service

Edit Package flickrfs

Warning: According to the ML (January, 2008), flickrfs is not compatible
with python-fuse 0.2. It is said there are problems with threading.

Start it as follows:

mkdir ~/my_flickrfs
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/flickrfs:$PYTHONPATH \ ~/my_flickrfs

Flickrfs is a virtual filesystem which mounts on your machine like
any other partition. Once mounted it retrieves information about your
photos hosted on your flickr account, and shows them as files. You
can easily copy photos from your local machine to this mount and it
will automatically upload them to your flickr account. Similarly you
can copy the files from your mount to the local machine and it will
download your images from flickr.

Flickrfs uses FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) which is a simple
interface for userspace programs to export a virtual filesystem to
the Linux kernel.

All the files in the mount have an associated meta file, which
provides access to title, description, tags and license information.
Modifiying any of these fields and saving the meta file will cause
them to be updated on the server also.

Flickrfs also includes a syncing mechanism. This allows for automatic
synchronisation of changes done online directly to your local
