Hi everybody,
I would like to know if there is a way to accomplish the following goal.
Let's assume that we have spaces with these properties: year, customer; and that we have the following space structure:

Company Home
+- Projects
    +- P1 (year = 2009, customer = alfa)
    +- P2 (year = 2010, customer = alfa)
    +- P3 (year = 2010, customer = beta)

So far so good, but I desire the presence also of a directory called "Navigation", which contains the above projects with a structure similiar to the one described below:

Company Home
+- Navigation
    +- Year
      +- 2009
        +- P1
      +- 2010
        +- P2
        +- P3
    +- Customer
      +- alfa
        +- P1
        +- P2
      +- beta
        +- P3

The content of the various "copies" of P1, P2, … is the same of the "real" directories under Projects: when I open Navigation/Year/2009/P1/somefile.txt , i'm actually editing Projects/P1/somefile.txt.

I've tried with "links" (created via Alfresco Explorer), but they didn't work in CIFS or WebDAV.
Sorry, I wasn't able to find an answer in the books or wiki; the best I found is http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/File_Server_Subsystem#Custom_Filesystem_Configuration , but I don't understand if and how changing the directory behaviour is possible.

I would like to have this structure in CIFS or webdav very much. The same structure in the Alfresco Explorer would be nice, but is not essential.

Thank you very much

LB
