We would not be in favor of this transfer. We believe this API needs to
be developed in the DAP group, as our vision for its functionality was
driven by the input from BONDI and in general as a *device* API (as
compared to an abstracted API for cloud-based file resources), and we do
not believe that vision will be fulfilled if this work is transferred to

If the issue is the level of discussion in this group, that can be
addressed. For one, I have seen quite a lot of traffic on the DAP email
list about this, so I don't understand the question of activity.

But to start, I will address some of the open topics in the current
draft on the DAP list, to help get the discussion moving faster.

Subject: Transferring File* to WebApps - redux

Hi all,

as mentioned last week, there is talk of potentially transferring the
File * deliverables to WebApps where they are being far more actively
discussed (or even, discussed at all).

This transfer naturally needs to be ratified by the DAP WG, a decision
that will be on this week's call. Since my previous email on the topic
elicited no response whatsoever, I'm sending this one as a reminder to
make sure that no one missed the previous one.

Enough administrativia, you may now return to productive work :)
