How can it be the “whole story” if you miss “a lot of details”?
If you will review our original post. we actually wrote that there are a lot of details and therefore we may have missed “something.” We certainly didn’t write that we left out a lot of details, in fact the vast majority are indeed there.
to be more precisely about the link you shared: they only announced that it’s going to be open source (“most likely gpl v3”) and that you could sign up at dev-forum to get informed about when it’s going to be out.
MEANING: it did not neccessarily happen until now.
too bad that neither this blogpost has no release-day mentioned nor is there anything else to download than “FileCloud Developer API documentation” and “FileCloud HTTP API documentation”. this isn’t exactly what i understand from being “open source”
Exactly, just an announcement from almost 10 years ago. Not that I care about this product/project at all, if you can show us a repository with the source code under an Open Source license then it would be awesome.
Well, if details are missing, it can’t be the “whole story”. Just semantics, otherwise your article still contains some interesting information.
Note down that Seafile and Nextcloud are very different from each other, not just in terms of functionality but also in file handling. Seafile makes 4mb chunks of files and stores chunks on the server: you can’t get at the files directly but it gives a performance improvement.
