Package: owncloud-client
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I've connected to a server but am receiving a message "The server version is unsupported! Proceed at your own risk."

This message is confusing, since it doesn't give any clue as to what the client
version is.  The Debian package version,, is so wildly at
odds with that there doesn't seem a meaningful comparison.  Is this a
protocol version?  Indeed, Internet discussions of same indicate that there's
no meaningful comparison between the two at all, but it looks as if pre-10
servers are obsolete.

Perhaps the client could indicate what server versions it supports, and suggest
a judgement as to whether it's the client or the server that needs an upgrade?
