repositories on SharePoint, Nuxeo, Tibco, Alfresco, Google Drive and
many other CMS ..." Of course, a marketing blog isn't development. But
others have gained this impression, e.g. to the point of filing Ubuntu
bugs expecting the feature to work:
Some clarification of its status may be appropriate ...)
