Branch: pkgsrc-2021Q4, Version: 1.15.1, Package name: fuse-bindfs-1.15.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

bindfs is a FUSE filesystem for mounting a directory to another location,
similar to 'mount --bind' in Linux or nullfs in BSD. The permissions of
the mirrored directory can be altered in various ways.

Some things bindfs can be used for:
- Making a directory read-only.
- Making all executables non-executable.
- Sharing a directory with a list of users (or groups).
- Modifying permission bits using rules with chmod-like syntax.
- Changing the permissions with which files are created.

Non-root users can use almost all features, but most interesting
use-cases need user_allow_other to be defined in /etc/fuse.conf
