Moving on Up

The work continues. It’s not quite finished, but a patch that’s getting close has been attached to Bug 501689 for feedback. In the mean time, we’ve begun looking at moving item metadata from the provider interface to the item interface. While not a necessity for either async storage or a cache-only system, it comes with some benefits. As it currently is, each provider would have to duplicate code to retrieve the item specific metadata that we want. If we save this with the item, the code can be kept a lot cleaner. It’s the next step, and once completed we can begin looking forward to doing the real work on implementing a cache-only system.
