Again, upstream ownCloud developers showing how badly cooperation can be…

They are becoming more and more vocal about so called issues, would that
be in their mailing lists, in their own personal blog posts, in their
bug tracker… The ambiance becomes more and more unbearable.

Not sure it would be a service to our users (especially given the
packaging quality they propose), but not sure I can face this recurrent
amount of name calling alone either.

Despite the fair amount of time I’ve given in the ownCloud packaging in
the last few months (or years), and having something almost ready for
9.0.0, I’m not sure what will be the next step, but if upstream is
hostile to our work, I’m afraid their will be nothing for us left to keep…

Fedora packagers already slammed the door a few months ago, not sure we
can do better…
