Description Bastien Nocera 2010-04-26 19:33:28 UTC
The FindNotify notification support should be exported to applications so that user-space VFSes can implement support for it (in my particular case, so it can be implemented in gvfs).
Comment 1 Jeremy Allison 2010-04-26 19:48:57 UTC
What does the gvfs FindNotify interface look like ? Can you point me at a design document or source code so I can see what the calling API would look like ?


Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2010-04-27 03:27:14 UTC
The equivalent is:

The easiest probably is to offer a small interface on top of FindNotify that exposes most of its functionality, and work out the kinks in the gvfs smb backend.

Taking ownership...
Comment 4 Ross Lagerwall 2015-09-09 20:39:26 UTC
I guess this can be closed now since the functionality has been implemented.

Bastien, I've got some patches that adds support to gvfs, but it depends on bug 11413 being fixed.

Shipped in 4.3.0.
