Intent to remove FileError

# Tetsuharu OHZEKI (3 days ago)

I'm not sure that we have a kind of this process, but I think this mail might be helpful for some developers relying on this legacy interface.

Summary

I removed FileError as a web-exposed interface. By this change, FileReader.error uses DOMException instead.

Explanation

AFAIK, FileError was used in the earlier spec about 10 years ago. www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-FileAPI-20101026

And it had been changed to DOMError but it was also replaced to DOMException in 2017. w3c/FileAPI#11

Other browsers followed this spec change several years ago, but WebKit is still exposing this interface.

Thus I removed FileError as a web-exposed interface in bug 213117. bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=213117

I plan to remove internal usages for FileError.{h,cpp} in bug 213119. bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=213119
