Hi Webkit-dev folks,

I wanted to let you know that we have been working on and adding code for
FileSystem API [1] to WebKit. (I think I have mentioned the feature several
times in the past on this mailing list but have never sent out an announce
or request-for-comments type email so far.)

The feature/API builds on top of the core File API [2] and it is behind
the ENABLE_FILE_SYSTEM feature define.  Right now the feature is enabled by
default in chrome/chromium port and being tested on buildbots.

An umbrella bug for this feature is/was:

Right now the only port that implements this feature is chrome/chromium (as
far as I know), but we have a plan to add Mac port support too in the near
future (if no one objects), and we expect this feature to be eventually
enabled by all ports.

Looking forward to you comments!
