Hi laurent,

I am talking about a combination of 2 repos basically: dms and storage. The 
idea is to use DMS for what it is supposed to be used but use external storage 
(customer asks for Google Drive) as its backend. The idea would be the 
documents managed in DMS wouls also be avilable from that external storage.

For that, Enric's proposal seems a great fit to me...

Best regards,
