Severity: important

    No man pages and only skeletal --help for gvfs(anything).
Doc is sorely needed, sometimes the command line utilities
(i.e. gvfs-ls, gvfs-mount) fail and there is no way of knowing
why, nothing to illuminate the problem.

Thanks

I use awesome wm and am not in the need of gvfsd, but evince and
libglib2.0-0, which is required by libgtk2.0-0, claws-mail, libreoffice
and LOTS more, depend on it. I want to be able, to disable it
(#544148). Thanks!

gvfs* has no manual nor can any info be find in the doc,
which is reported without answer since 2009.

grep -i metadata $(find /usr/share/doc/gvfs* -type f)

The help is not quite verbose:

<
Usage:
  gvfsd-metadata [OPTION...] 

Metadata daemon for GVFS

Help Options:
  -h, --help        Show help options

Application Options:
  -r, --replace     Replace old daemon.
>

Please use more time to document these daemons.

Thanks,
kardan
