Hello Simon,

Can you explain what is meant by data reset in the point below?

"Does data reset uninstall apps? Does a data reset leave the installed store apps installed, or does it uninstall them all? (In other words, does it leave store apps' static files intact, or does it delete them?)"

Can you give me a usecase where data reset is done?

Best regards

Suma L

Subject: [Devel] Application Layout design proposal

Here is a design proposal for altering the installed layout of
application bundles to be suitable for upgrade/rollback, data-reset,
containerization, and the theme installation use-cases raised by Ramya
and Suma on <https://bugs.apertis.org/show_bug.cgi?id=575>:


Please let me know if there are any requirements that are not covered,
or areas that are unclear or unsuitable.

There are some unresolved questions about the requirements, for which I
would particularly appreciate feedback:


The part discussing icon themes should eventually be split out into a
separate design document that specifically covers what has been said on
<https://bugs.apertis.org/show_bug.cgi?id=575>, but for the moment it's
just a subsection of Application_Layout.
