Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
I wanted to access a remote ftp/http server and it doesn't work as
documented in /usr/share/doc/avfs/README.gz

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
mountavfs # creates the ~/.avfs dir and I can access compressed files
like cat ~/.avfs/usr/share/doc/avfs/README.gz#
from README.gz: "/               - anonymous ftp"
ls ~/.avfs/ # throws error file or dir not found

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
If some extensions don't work any more then they should be remove from
the documentation.
