[Owncloud] ownCloud + GNOME

Hello everybody! Greetings from GNOME.

There has been some interest in using and integrating ownCloud in GNOME:

As the GNOME Online Accounts (GNOME's single sign-on framework) maintainer, I
am interested in enabling applications to work with users' ownCloud instances.
For the SSO we need to decide how to store and verify the user's credentials
so that different applications can use it to do their own thing. eg., Nautilus
would show files over WebDAV, Evolution would show the addressbook and calendar
over CardDAV and CalDAV, and so on.

Usually this is an OAuth token or a password.

I see that http://gitorious.org/owncloud/pages/Home#General mentions OAuth.
What are the plans regarding it? Can we expect it to happen within the next
couple of months so that we can have all the pieces in place for GNOME 3.8 in

Or, do you recommend that we just ask for the user's password?

Happy hacking,
