This is a big fail. When we decided to go for owncloud, the basic idea was to have something that 
would let people download freely and publicly from it, yet requiring credentials for upload. 
Silly me, I just found out you must login to even access the common folder on Owncloud.

I don't believe log-in creds are needed (see my previous email)

The problem is almost no one is interested in getting credentials so no one is checking up what I 
am uploading.

I think we just need to publish the correct URL.

We were told that Owncloud would be perfect. It is not and is near useless. Really I don't need 
owncloud to sync files between my two computers. Starting from now I will be uploading the specs 
on my dropbox. It won't help with collaborative work but at least everyone will be able to 
download documents.

I'd like to avoid us using dropbox as much as possible -- it's not a
shared space, it's not FOSS, and it's not something that we have much
control over. If there's something specific I can do to make it easier
for us to use ownCloud -- perhaps some step-by-step documentation?
Screencast? -- please let me know.
