Package: owncloud
Version: 7.0.0+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The owncloud package forcibly changes the owner and group of /etc/owncloud to
www-data. This is problematic if you run owncloud as another user, since you
need to set the owner back on every upgrade. Please preserve user-made
modifications to the config file permissions.
