Requested by: Viraj Sinha (virajs07)
Partner organization:

This plugin will enable kde users to sync their folders with owncloud
with just a click in their file manager. The user will just right click
on the folder he/she wants to share and a proper sync - desync option
will come up in the menu which will enable the user to link/delink his
folder with owncloud.

Test Case:
The user clicks on the folder to sync/desync it with owncloud but the
folder doesn't get sync. This might be because there is no owncloud
instance on the machine of the user. The user will be prompted to take
the necessary actions then and will also have an option to report his
error if it is an internal working error. Otherwise if everything is
working then the user won't face much of a problem and successfully the
option clicked by the user will be performed on the folder

Use Case:
1) Achieve Goal
The user right clicks on the folder or the file that he wants to share
and gets the option of syncing/ desyncing the folder/file with owncloud
alongwith the regular right-click options
2) Abandon Goal
he user right clicks on the folder or the file that he wants to share
and somehow doesn't get the option of syncing/ desyncing the
folder/file with owncloud then the appropriate message showing error
and cause of error is shown to the user with the option of reporting
the error

Business case (Partner benefit): The present scenario in owncloud is if there is an
instance of owncloud running on the machine then the user will need to
login there . After logging in user will have to choose the
files/folders he wants to share. If the user is browsing through his
files he doesn't have the option of choosing it there only . He will
have to come to his browser window and go to owncloud tab to share.
This once implemented will make life easier for people using dolphin as
a file manager as the user while browsing through his files or folders
will have the option of syncing/desyncing his files/folders with
