[Pkg-owncloud-maintainers] Bug#784965: owncloud: File sharing by link only works when done by the file owner

Package: owncloud
Version: 7.0.4+dfsg-4~deb8u1
Severity: normal


I'd like to share files via links that I give to friends.  This works well
when I'm sharing my own files, but if I share a file that's shared with me,
even though I have permission to re-share, the link I get only leads to a
page saying that says that the link "doesn't seem to work anymore" (in

In concrete terms: assume I have users A1 and A2, and group G.  A2 belongs
to G.  A1 shares /dir with group G, with permission to re-share.
If A1 shares /dir/file "via link", then the link works and the recipient
of the link can download the file.
If A2 shares /dir/file "via link", then the link leads to an error page.

This seems to behave similarly whether the sharing is done via the web
interface or via the Nautilus integration.
