Thanks for your proposal!

I think that there are already several proposals related to building disk images, so hey, maybe you can focus indeed on what you do best - the development side. There's some stuff for the auto-config, Mickael had a proposal, Daniel Ripoll offered to help. Then the Syncloud guys, they have apps already.

I personally like the Syncloud solution but up to a point - UPnP won't work for everybody. Also, much of it happens 'under' ownCloud, but maybe that is a good approach. What are your thoughts on the other proposals?

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
