Proposed: gnome-volume-manager

(This is a thread-starter for the final module discussion before the release
team reports back with a summary and proposal, which will aim to represent
the consensus of the community. Please be kind to authors, and start totally
new threads if there's a reason to shift off-topic.)


  GNOME Volume Manager is a simple state machine that acts as a policy
  engine on top of HAL. It includes a control panel applet. Said policy
  includes auto-mounting of any hot-plugged removable device, auto- mounting
  of media such as CD's and DVD's, auto play of {Blank,Data, Audio,Video}
  CD's, and auto importing of photos from camera.

  (This is a fairly technical description... It's a configurator and
  controller for handling hot-plugged drives and storage media, which allows
  this kind of hardware to "Just Work" on the GNOME desktop. It's a very
  modern replacement for magicdev.)
