@frankiesaxx Yes, unfortunately. 😟 And with that decentralization approach (and having dozens of "instances" hosted by "someone") makes it even more difficult, when your only two choices are either running things completely on your own or relying your company operation upon infrastructure provided by someone you (in worst case) barely know. We possibly need more services and service providers such as NextCloud for that.
