mount.aptfs mountpoint [options]
AptFs is a FUSE-based filesystem that provides a view to unpacked Debian source packages obtained using apt-get source as regular folders. Binary packages are modelled as symbolic links pointing to their respective source package.
AptFs maintains a sliding window of unpacked sources packages - it would not be very helpful if commands such as:
% find /path/to/aptfs
unpacked the entire APT archive into the temporary directory. To specify the number of packages to keep unpacked at one time, use the -o max_unpacked_packages=NUM option.
One can re-enable verification using passing -o secure=1 when mounting AptFs.
