[Owncloud] Getting owncloud-client in Debian

I'm started this WE packaging the owncloud-client and csync for debian. As 
basis I took the obs and the ubuntu packages. Some parts are unclear for me:


* license mismatch in owncloud-client/mirall: COPYIING.documentation says that 
the documentation CCLC vs. doc/script/README.rst says: LGPGv3 => what is the 
license of the documenation?

* the documention for owncloud-client & manpage should be build and installed 
by "make" [ a rough doc2default.patch], so it is possible to use manpages and 
create a -doc package.

* can someone explain me, why mirall is created but not rm'ed in the obs 
packages? What is the difference between mirall and owncloud-client?


* the best would be to use only one name for this package. Otherwise peaope 
get problems if they try to switch from the obs package to the pure package 
and further around. We (pkg-owncloud) prefered ocsync, 'cause the tarball was 
named like this.

* libiniparser and that this package has problems getting into debian [1] 
and that Andreas Schneider (csync developer) don't want to replace 
libiniparser [2]. I used the mentions this patch to create a updated version 
(0001-csync_config-Drop-iniparser-dependency.patch). But the best would be if 
this patch would be upstream. It is not my intenstion, that the packages 
differ from upstream.

You can also get to the sources:
ocsync [3] and owncloud-client [4]
