Yes, I'm currently in the process of trying to get eGroupWare synced from
Debian, I just need to figure out why it's in experimental. It builds fine in
a Gutsy sbuild. Umm. The server will be Gutsy, and when Gutsy gets released,
ScottK thought up of a great marketting scheme to pull in more corporate
users... something like:
With Ubuntu Server 7.10 and Kubuntu 7.10 you can easily set up an open source
collaboration server with eGroupWare. It offers seamless integration into
Kubuntu's KDE-PIM suite, yadda yadda. A shining example of it would be
Kubuntu Devel's eGroupWare server.
We'd probably have to get the marketting team to write it up... or a great
writer from the Kubuntu/Server teams. And, if I'm not mistaken, eGroupWare
was part of the server team's goals for Gutsy.
