Unionfs patchset is regularly released for new kernels, and bugs are fixed. I wouldn't call the project "dead", I would call it "mature" and "stable". I am not aware of the current state of affairs wrt. Unionfs vs. aufs, and whether the propaganda at unionfs.org still holds water, though. Too bad that there is no stacking filesystem in the mainline kernel. -- Maxim Kammerer Liberté Linux (discussion / support: http://dee.su/liberte-contribute)
