Dear Maintainer,

I am a GSOC student, working on the project
"Automated configuration of packaged web applications":

owncloud is the second application we are trying, and I noticed that it does
not support multiple instances without duplicating the owncloud source tree.

The upstream community is still discussing that possibility:

I've made a patch based on the changes in that pull request, which makes it
to have separate instances of owncloud, with separate database and data
Please consider applying it to the Debian package.

If you are OK with carrying this patch while the upstream community
discusses it,
I can also update the documentation with a simple tutorial on how to do

with this patch, I managed three instances of owncloud, also I wrote a
that makes instalation and configurations that are required.

Its avaliable in the repository of my GSOC project:
