Problem:
You want to get a specific feature into ownCloud.

Answer:
There are several steps possible:

  1. First check that such a feature doesn’t exist at one of the following pages:
    https://owncloud.org/eight-two/ (ownCloud 8.2 Features)
    https://doc.owncloud.org/ (ownCloud Documentation)
    https://apps.owncloud.com (Apps which extends the Functionality of ownCloud)

  2. Check the bugtracker if your feature is already requested:
    https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues (ownCloud core)
    https://github.com/owncloud/apps/issues (ownCloud apps)
    https://github.com/owncloud/client/issues (ownCloud Sync-Client)
    https://github.com/owncloud/calendar/issues (Calendar app)
    https://github.com/owncloud/contacts/issues (Contacts app)
    https://github.com/owncloud/ (Overview of all ownCloud Repositories)

  3. ownCloud is OpenSource. If you’re a developer implement the feature yourself. First steps are available at: http://owncloud.org/developer/
    You could also ask at the developers mailinglist:
    http://mailman.owncloud.org/mailman/listinfo/devel
    or at the IRC channel #owncloud-dev at freenode
