TY for the response.
As also claimed in the "evil" (?) github thread, the "recommends"
requirements also cause gnome related components, A/V software and jre
to be installed.
I agree that I can avoid installing recommendations manually, but I
believe the common use-case for owncloud *server* is more like mine
(headless lean server) than GUI desktops. Don't you agree?
Also in that thread, one of the repository owners agreed that the
"recommends" section is... too large, and changed the isv version
in dec13 to have this metadata:
Depends: apache2 | httpd, php5 (>= 5.3.3), php5-mysqlnd | php5-mysql,
php5-sqlite, php5-pgsql, php5-common, php5-gd, php-xml-parser,
php5-intl, php5-mcrypt, php5-curl, php5-json, ntp | time-daemon
Recommends: curl, exim4 | mail-transport-agent, php5-imagick, php5-apc
Suggests: clamav | clamav-daemon, smbclient, libav-tools | ffmpeg,
Which makes much more sense (IMO)
