Re: Request: Enable external storage support on GNOME OwnCloud instance

Hey Jim!

I've personally never used the "External Storage" plugin myself and
I'm wondering whether introducing it might create some fuss between
users in the case, for example, they configure an external share and
they erroneously copy a sensitive file on it. We want to have control
over the files we manage and I feel introducing such plugin might not
be the best solution as files will suddenly be served by several other
cloud services at the same time.

Is there a specific reason you felt this plugin could have been a nice
addition? what's your experience with it so far?

I'm not sure if this is the proper venue for this request, but I wanted
to request that the external storage support feature [0] be enabled in
the GNOME OwnCloud instance.

The administrator would need to enable the feature in the admin
dashboard, but users could configure their external storage options (if
any) via their own personal accounts.

This plugin is part of the OwnCloud core application, and is not a
third-party / unsupported plugin.

Thank you for your consideration,
