[gamin] Question about gamin.


I'm working on a fuse module, and want to make it inotify aware.

Now I know about gamin. I'm building my won desktop with
LinuxFromScratch, and gamin
is always a part of the build.

But what does gamin excactly?

Inotify request go via the kernel. Does gamin replace these calls?

Or is it an extra layer around the inotify syscalls/structure, to
provide an seemless interface
with filesystems that do not provide inotify (remote fs's for example)

PS I've sent this message before, but somehowe that's lost.
