      Description

      We need some specs for how this will work in 2.0.

      1) Which fileareas will be accessible? User filearea only? All contexts that file browser can see?
      2) Permissions? Which areas should be read/write and which read-only?
      3) Interface? How can user know WebDAV is accessible and how to set up their clients?

      Some info from ML's hack for 1.9:

            We are using this in production with Martín's 1.9 patches, no problems except client support..

            We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
