Hi Eric, Adam, WonSuk, All,

During WebApps' Oct 29 discussion about the File: Writer (#Writer) and 
File: Directories and System (#D&S) specs (#Mins), someone mentioned 
SysApps was doing some related work. I just scanned SysApps' #Charter 
and noticed it includes these two related deliverables:

1. File System - I didn't notice any additional information in the 
charter other than a FPWD is expected in "Q3-Q6".

2. Media Storage - "An API to manage the device's storage of specific 
content types (e.g. pictures). Examples: Tizen Media Content (#Tizen), 
B2G Device Storage (#B2G)".

Would some please explain the relationship between these various specs?

In the case of SysApps' Media Storage spec, perhaps it is WebApps' IDB 
spec that is (more) relevant but that may depend on the UCs of Media 
Storage so clarification here is also welcome.

(I noticed a somewhat related thread this past summer in #public-sysapps 
but it appears that was mostly about the applicability (or not) of Web 
Intents vis-a-vis #1 and #2 above.)

-Thanks, AB
