[https://wiki.mozilla.org/FirefoxOS/Haida] mentions this bug under "Shared Workers". I'm a bit confused on what the relationship to Bug 643325 is. Is this a dependency, synonymous to or dupe of, or orthogonal to Bug 643325?

florian, this is my tracking bug so that we get everything done we promised to get done.  bug 643325 may be a dependency of this bug.

From this list:

* Web Audio will require spec work -- that's not something that we can do right now.
* DataStore and TCPSocket (at least) are implemented in JS, which complicates things.
* WorkerNavigator.onLine is needed for some of our offline use cases (bug 925437).

Fwiw, not all of these APIs are required for end of year.  Ehsan - can you find out exactly what is needed for the gaia demos?

I meant to ask you what you intended this bug to be, Doug:  APIs required for MWC demos or APIs gaia needs on workers in general.  I guess the latter is silly.

AFAIK async IDB is #1 and gaia can probably work around the others for their MWC demos.

Sure, will do!

Vivien told me that the two big things that Gaia needs for the MWC demos are IndexedDB and DataStore.  The latter can be difficult since it's implemented in JS...
