                <title>Description</title>

                <para>GIO provides a VFS API to GLib applications. It
                includes a 'local' implementation using POSIX. gvfs
                provides implementations that go beyond that and allow
                to access files and storage using many protocols, such
                as ftp, http, sftp, dav, nfs, etc. It also provides
                support for trash folders, for cd burning and for monitoring
                interesting devices and volumes on the computer.</para>

                <para>Applications use gvfs indirectly, by means of GIO
                loading the gvfs module that implements the GIO extension
                points. The gvfs support for volume monitoring is included
                in a separate loadable module.</para>

                <para>The actual gvfs implementation is distributed over
                a number of processes. None of these are expected to be
                started from the commandline, except for debugging
                purposes.</para>
