Hi Noèl,
cc'ing calendarserver-dev @ macosforge, since upstream (obviously) reads
it and some of the folks there are building on linux. The calendarserver
alioth project is an ongoing effort to packages up Apple's
calendarserver for Debian [0].

Kerberos now works with commit 0a8aa4dea42107604c6da57ead6e5f083b17dcdb
[1]. The bug is actually in calendarserver, not in pykerberos [2].
Tested it with firefox and iceowl, the later  just needs SPNEGO/Kerberos
enabled in the default build.

...and it needs patches from the calendarserver source tree, see [3].
upstream seems a bit unresponsive ;) Maybe due to the upcoming 1.0
release [4]?

Keeping it separate might be easiest for now. Maybe upstream merges back
more of the patches, would be nice.

calendarserver git is now be buildable without patches. I'll just update
the linux ppc packages. Could you add twisted i386 packages?
