[Pkg-owncloud-maintainers] Bug#857550: Owncloud in Debian 8 is way outdated (7.0.4), and can no longer be easily upgraded to now-current version (9.1.4)

Package: owncloud
Version: 7.0.4+dfsg-4~deb8u4


Following a security report at our owncloud installation, I attempted to
upgrade, but I noticed that I could only upgrade to 7.0.4 (from 7.0.3),
as that was the most recent version in the Debian repositories.

Fortunately, I located a third-party repository at

However, the version they have is 9.1.4, and the gap is so big that the
database can't be upgraded. Apparently the recommended approach is to
upgrade by little steps, but the intervening debs can no longer be found

Thanks for remediating this (i.e. make available more recent versions
that 7.0.4, but still keep enough steps around to ease upgrading)
