thanks a lot, that you started to look into the kFeeeBSD support for owncloud.

Actually it would be nice to know if the cmd line client works like expected 
is also a usefull information. What would be great to know is:
* Does it upload/download missing files ?
* If you change a file at the server/client does it sync if you run it 
afterwards ?
* Does it uses ssl certs ...

But the most isssue we are unsure is if the desktop client gets all relevant 
changes from inotify, when a file is changed by editing/createing/deleting. 
But these are "only" issues, that are relevat for the desktop client that 
monitors changes. See the tests we had to deactivate:

Btw. thanks for the information, that the cmd version only syncs one time and 
do not monitors changes.

If you create any "test script" to test - I'm very pleased to put it to 
autotests - I had no time so far to create one...
