+
+    <para>The <application>gnome-volume-manager</application> package contains
+    a volume manager for GNOME. It is a desktop-level daemon that enforces
+    volume-related policy in response to events received from
+    <application>HAL</application>. This is useful for automatic mounting of
+    floppy diskettes, CDROMs and removable storage devices. It can also be
+    used to automatically run a program in response to other hotplug events
+    such as plugging in USB printers or cameras, or inserting DVDs and
+    music CDs. The goal of <application>gnome-volume-manager</application> is
+    to implement all functionality as a state-machine in response to
+    asynchronous events from <application>HAL</application>. It is one
+    component in a larger plan to fully integrate all levels of the Linux
+    system, from the kernel on up through the desktop and its
+    applications.</para>
