I would like to create a compressed CVS repository, but I can not seem
to find a simple way to do this. . . (Or really any way.)
I have seen people talk about the existence of a compressed loop.
What is this? Does a compressed, read/write filesystem exist?
I found zisofs, but that looks like it would work read only, and
really only for a CD, i.e. the file tree needs to exist first then the
iso filesystem is created. . . I found squashfs but that is also read
only. If I create a loop-back device, i.e. a file that works like a
filesystem, I need to uncompress the file prior to mounting the loop.
