I believe it would be nice to have libfuse and ntfs-3g (along with ext2/ext4) in main OI pakages repo, better yet, out of the box after installation. I wish to work on inclusion of them into main OI repository.

You'll want to bump OSOL-fuse to 2.8.6 once you get the initial migration done. I recently bumped some specs to NTFS-3g-2011-10-9-RC, fuse-ext2 0.0.7 and fuse-exfat 0.9.5. Ran across >=4GB file handling and a few other bug issues noted for OSOL-fuse so thought you'd want to spec out a fuse 2.8.6 update after your initial project.

Yes please have NTFS-3g in OI.
That's pretty much the only reason I prefer Ubuntu vs OI now.

Closing ticket. The NTFS-3G/fuse packages are now available in oi-sfe.
