Hi Jos,

I CC the owncloud mailing-list. I hope this is O.K.

It would be super cool if you could open and edit odf files directly from the ownCloud webinterface.
The idea is that you could work on your documents with KOffice or LibreOffice if you sit on your desktop and you can keep on working on your files if you have only a browser like for example on your smart phone or tablet.

This is super cool! I will work on the integration with ownCloud if you want.

The saving could be done via webdav or standard http fileupload. Both should work with ownCloud.

I think webodf and ownCloud combined is a winning team.
