I want to use a Keycloak instance (SSO provider) for authenticating users on a nextcloud application.

For the record, main purposes of this mirror are: being a lightweight read-only repository to clone from for production servers hide the ugly git stuff behind a great mercurial interface The clone is at the usual location at bitbucket, from which you can browse, clone, […]
