>Thorsten, how do you expect to handle it?

Have not investigated it yet. Same as with the other occurrences,
I guess – cut off the convenience copies of third-party code, patch
the code to use the system-wide copy, and kick it until it ble^Wworks.

Yes. There’s of course also the risk that the system-wide copy has got
security and bugfixes which make using it at all possible. ☺ It’s Policy
so there’s not even any need to discuss it, even if you don’t like it,

<Natureshadow> Dann mach ich git annex copy --to shore und fertig ist das
<Natureshadow> das ist ja viel cooler als ownCloud ...
<mirabilos> sag ich doch
<Natureshadow> ja wieso stimmt das denn immer was du sagst ...
