Question What are work and temp directories and what xwiki is using them for?
Answer The work directory is used to store persistent data (which aren't deleted at shutdown), for example lucene search can use it to store search indexes.

The temp directory is used to store temporary data, for example the svg plugin can use it as a cache to store computed pngs.
