davfs2 is a Linux file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server
as a local file system, like a disk drive. This way applications can access
resources on a Web server without knowing anything about HTTP or WebDAV. davfs2
runs as a daemon in userspace. It uses the kernel file system coda or fuse.
Most probably your Linux kernel includes at least one of this file systems. To
connect to the WebDAV server it makes use of the neon library. Neon supports
TLS/SSL (using OpenSSL or GnuTLS) and access via proxy server.

davfs2 allows you to e.g.

* use a WebDAV server as workspace for a geographically distributed work
* save documents on a WebDAV server and access and edit them via internet from
wherever you want.
* edit a web site in place, using your preferred development tools.
