Branch: CURRENT, Version: 20160928, Package name: fuse-sparsebundlefs-20160928, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Mac OS X v10.5 (Leopard) introduced the concept of sparse-bundle disk images,
where the data is stored as a collection of small, fixed-size band-files
instead of as a single monolithic file. This allows for more efficient
backups of the disk image, as only the changed bands need to be stored.

One common source of sparse-bundles is Mac OS' backup utility, Time Machine,
which stores the backup data within a sparse-bundle image on the chosen
backup volume.

This software package implements a FUSE virtual filesystem for read-only
access to the sparse-bundle, as if it was a single monolithic image.
