I think you're absolutely correct, but I also think that it is completely 
pointless to try to convince Jos Poortvliet. [removed my personal, not very 
positive qualifications of him as that will also not help the situation]

As I have a strong feeling I'm 'responsible' for him throwing a fit, here's the 
context in case ppl are unaware: 
https://mailman.owncloud.org/pipermail/user/2015-December/002116.html and then 
the follow-ups.

I think I was/am completely correct in what I said in that thread, but in 
hindsight I probably should've kept it to myself.

As usual/always their only 'solution' to a problem is to upgrade to a latest 
(beta) version in the hope that the problem then goes away. 
(I am quite certain that the issue is on the sync client on the phone)
And any upgrade problems will always be blamed on the Debian packages, even 
though they are FAR superior to theirs. 

So my *personal* opinion is to just ignore him and/or issues like this as I 
don't think they're interesting in properly solving them and it likely only 
creates bad blood.
