In sehr erhitzten Zustand geschriebener offener Brief an die Mozilla Foundation, welcher den eigenen Syncserver in der Form eindämmen möchte, dass wir Ihn ab Version 30 des Browser nicht mehr selber nutzen können. Schon ab Version 29 des Browsers gibt es keine Möglichkeit mehr ein neues Gerät hinzuzufügen.
let us talk together, from user to foundation.
After the things that are happened in the last time (hint Snowden), it is impossible for me to save my data in another cloud/place/callitwantyouwant than my own fine encrypted server with a self hosted Syncserver.
You spend your time imagine a new way for the „users“ to get an account for syncing the data between their installations/devices.
What was wrong with the old one?
Not easy enough to put in the emailaddress and a password.
Not easy enough to connect another instance with typing in some numbers given by the instance ?
You told us, that the syncserver wasn’t used very well.
Ae one of my most read articles is Synchronisation für Firefox auf dem eigenen Server
The other used instances are Mozilla Syncserver in owncloud (atm 3386 Downloads).
I think there are more than I know.
Or did you know more than me and monitoring our installations?
The peoples love their syncServer and do not switch to chromium or Google Chrome.
Of course one reason is the syncServer and more and more use one.
You are going the absolute wrong way and the theorethical, “ it is possible to set up the own sync server“… c’mon this awkward.
Let me tell you something from my side, I could not speak for the others, but let me tell you a forecast for the future:
What do you think will users with a syncserver, like me, do ?
I’ll switch to chromium and of course I’ll will not spend my time with the mozilla project in any case, because I could not sync and host my own data.
What’s about FirefoxOS and me?
I have no real DAVsupport atm and when I have, I could not use my own syncServers at all.
This means I never switch to it, as I wanted before.
Please, all I want is to setup my own Syncserver with version 1.5 like I do with 1.1.
I will use with version 30 my own Syncserver and not uninstall my syncserver and move away from Mozilla Firefox.
We could not update from 1.1 to 1.5?
That’s fine for me, I’ll export everything and import it into the new syncServer.
Thanks for spending time and reading my open letter and I hope this will move something in the right way…
We have with this day only 12 Work Days to Go before you Relaunch the new syncServer
