Hi Jan!

Although I also don't feel I can commit to maintaining it all, you
will be glad to know I also took this step — And yesterday, I uploaded
owncloud (the webapp) to wheezy-backports¹. I have still not tackled
the other Owncloud packages, and am unsure if I can/should push them
all, but I'll most likely upload also at least ocsync as well.

I'm sorry we didn't synchronize our works and you ended up doing it as
well as me; I might use your work for ocsync — And if you feel I
should also explicitly look at another one among the packages, please
tell me so!
