ownCloud Requests Canonical Remove Repos

Softpedia reports on a spat between ownCloud and Canonical (Ubuntu) about hosting ownCloud files on the Ubuntu repos. The official repos for all of ownCloud on Linux are hosted at Suse. The real issue is that Ubuntu does not maintain the repos and things hosted there can be outdated and insecure. Ubuntu is not like Red Hat and Suse where there is careful oversight and security review. This was an unofficial and unmaintained repo that served no apparent purpose but was putting Ubuntu users at risk if they simply trusted Ubuntu's repos rather than going to ownCloud's own.
