Helloes!

I wonder what Arch's/Sergej Pupykin's position towards nextcloud is.
It seems that ownCloud lost most of its developers to the schism
introduced last year.
This led to many apps not being (mainly) developed by them anymore and
moving into the hands of nextcloud and/or being more actively developed
by nextcloud now (bookmarks, news, calendar, etc.)

There definitely also has been a problem transitioning from php 7.0.x to
7.1 as the current version of ownCloud now has a "hotfix" applied that
just suppresses the error message (which would render owncloud useless,
as owncloud < 9.2 suppossedly doesn't work with php 7.1).
The bookmark app is currently unusable (unable to add new bookmarks due
to an old version of guzzlehttp dependency) and I wonder how much more
of that we'll have incoming.

Wouldn't it be better to switch to nextcloud in the community repository at
this point?

Best,
David

Might be wise to include him in the TO field then ;-)

Well, I assumed he might be reading this mailing list, too. ;-)

I could, sure (and will, if this seems preferred). But what is this? A
feature request? Just wondered, if this discussion would not be
something more suited for the mailing.

Best,
David

I'd just vote for the package (if it enters community) to remove the
set-perms[1] script
since it makes no sense, if you run the app with its own user (for ex.
uwsgi systemd service, user nextcloud).
