Add disclaimer for possible disadvantages of setting up nextcloud on a rolling-release OS

Dear administrators,

I would like to propose adding a disclaimer to the wiki about the possible disadvantages of setting up nextcloud on a rolling-release OS like Arch linux. I have a nextcloud server that became dysfunctional after a recent update from php 7.3 to 7.4, since nextcloud doesn't upgrade as fast as a rolling release OS does. Trying to downgrade to php 7.3 was not possible either, due to several dependencies failing to allow that. Please don't get me wrong, I do believe that Arch linux's rolling-release feature is one of its strengths but when it is not matched with the same agility in the development of other software packages, it may become a problem, like in the case described above.

Thank you for your consideration.

Tried to put a prominent warning at the beginning of the article. It was removed 1,5 days later by Lahwaacz for being too generic. -- Wolegis (talk) 20:25, 19 October 2022 (UTC)
