Useful package requested ... 


Davenport is a servlet which provides a WebDAV gateway to SMB shared resources. Typical usage would be to provide web-based read and write access to Windows shared drives.

WebDAV clients, such as Windows' "Web Folders" can copy files to and from the shares over HTTP. Non-WebDAV-capable web browsers can also access the network, downloading files from shared folders in a seamless fashion.

Users access shared resources using their Windows domain username and password, so no account configuration is typically needed. When run over HTTPS, Davenport provides a secure means of accessing internal shared drives over the internet without requiring a VPN.

runs on java , so an Ebuild for multiple systems should hopefully simpler. 

and able to use Portage on multiple OS types including Gentoo Linux/BSD /Etc. 

And Sabayon Linux (Gentoo under the hood)
