      Description

      In order to support installation workflows that need to install non-relocatable software, provide a cvmfs_server enter command that opens a subshell with a temporary, writable access to /cvmfs/$repo. The writable environment should run unprivileged provided user namespaces and unprivileged fuse mounts are available. The changes to the /cvmfs area are written to $HOME/.cvmfs and discarded when the sub shell closes.
