A traditional quick heads up.
Owncloud 9.1 is a major update from 9.0 and presently in epel-testing.
Assuming nothing is found in the Fedora builds this is likely to be
pushed in about a week.
Please be aware that Owncloud 9.1 will be the last major update for
EPEL7 as Owncloud 9.2 drops support for php5.4 and use of Red Hat SCL
repositories are prohibited in EPEL at this time.
I will continue to make a best effort to update within the 9.1.X
branch in EPEL7 but when it presents an undue burden compared to the
Fedora release an announcement will go out indicating the retirement.
Remi has indicated that he'll continue to backport activity in Fedora
to his repo (http://rpms.famillecollet.com/) for EPEL users to install
in conjunction with his newer PHP packages. Alternatively you may wish
to switch to the upstream builds or in due course an Owncloud Fedora
docker container will be released which will be able to be run on EL7.
At the time of the container option I'll provide details on how to
migrate to it.

As an update to the announcement, it's been noted in the Fedora users
mailing list that the log file had a change of syntax at 1.3.2 (we
were on 1.3.1) back in 2012 ...
The logfile now has the timestamps in ISO 8601 format rather than
apache-like so if any parsing or logstash tools are being used against
the rsnapshot logs they will need to be updated to account for this
