I've prepared backported (just rebuild still) packages of owncloud[1]
for wheezy. I even backported all (build-)dependencies. Anyways .. I
don't feel I have time to commit me to maintain them official on
If anybody is interested in those packages, all needed
(source-)packages can be found in my own package pool[2] in the
distribution 'wheezy-backorts'.

I would appreciate to see owncloud in the backports pool.

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
