Why is nextcloud is calling home to google?


on a new fresh nc13 installation (without correct proxy config) I’ve seen that nextcloud is calling home to google, if I access the admin-page:

GuzzleHttp\Exception\ConnectException: cURL error 7: Failed connect to www.google.com:80; Connection timed out

What will nextcloud get there?

AFAIK Nextcloud is checking whether it has internet access by trying to reach google.com, github.com and nextcloud.com


Reason for that is probably that nextcloud.com is down regularly when new releases come out because of shitty wordpress

dude, this is loopy…
#vanillaNCthirteen really?

Will take 6 months for this to be corrected?
Sadly it is doubtful the logic that put it there will be as well…
