We would love to find a solution for them - as I've said many times, our main concern is the end users, rather than politics, rules or anything else.

One of the debian project's top priorities is its users and it has
rather more track record of providing solid software for them for the
long term which is WHY the various rules, policies and guidelines were
defined. They weren't just adopted as self-flagellation by masochists.
There seems to be a complete and total lack of appreciation for that
upstream in this instance.

If owncloud debian packages don't ever have a simple upgrade path, then
that's not much different to using owncloud upstream releases IME! :(
