   Description     : Nextcloud folder synchronization tool (server)

Nextcloud is an increasingly popular software package.  A first-class
integration of Nextcloud into Debian is desirable, but represents
a significant challenge because upstream development is unlikely to
produce long-cycled supported releases compatible with the Debian
release cycle.

This packaging sidesteps that issue by providing version-independent
tools to download, install, configure, update, and manage the server.
Although unconventional, such tools are not unheard of in Debian [1,2].

The current version is suitable for beta testing, and should eventually
reach maturity compatible with Debian stable.

Thank you,
Antonio Russo
