Will have to think about ownCloud

While I'm still waiting for the Horde 4 interview with Jan Schneider to appear on Radio Tux I got a reminder to think about ownCloud. While writing this I am listening to the interview about ownCloud.

I'm not yet certain it is actually different to Horde. Of course the way both projects started and the ideas behind them differ. But a lot of the targets seem to be very similar. In any case I need to identify if there are any bridges that could be easily built.

I'm mainly interested in seeing what kind of APIs they provide to the outside and whether this could be offered by Horde as well to support connecting desktop clients. Or maybe Horde could be integrated as a data serving backend. Of course ownCloud still lacks one thing: a decent storage backend. No Kolab support so far ;) ...
