Sorry about GSoC. Don't think that you need to apply to Season of KDE to work 
on ownCloud. We always want more contributors and are more than willing to 
help out.

I believe the improvements to the OCS API should also include the inter 
instance collaboration project, so we can have outside sources communicating 
with apps.
