The format is described in the the secrets file. It is essentially one line:
mountpoint username password

The mount point is the key. Every davfs2 file system needs an unique mount point (if you use fstab and/or the secrets file).

There is an example in the mount.davfs man page. But it does not exactly belong in the man page of davfs2.conf.

[field #13] Summary: Put the secrets file format in the man page
[field #14] Original Submission: I have several davfs mounts in fstab.

I don't want to type my long username and cryptic password in every time.

How will davfs lookup the password in the secrets file? With multiple secret? What's the format? What's the key for the lookup? Can this be in the MAN page?

These are the questions I have. Kind regards
