Package: horde3
Version: 3.0.4-4sarge3

The README.Debian file is a bit sparse.  Here are some suggested additions:

In the first section about configuring your web server, add a bit about
setting up setting up Horde to show up at the /horde3 URL.  This location
appears to be hard-coded in horde although i may be mistaken.

perhaps this:

	Your web server must be configured so that Horde is accessible via the
	URL /horde3.  apache2 example syntax:

	    Alias /horde3/ "/usr/share/horde3/"

	    <Directory "/usr/share/horde3/">
		Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
		AllowOverride None
		Order deny,allow
		Deny from all
		Allow from  # ADD YOUR NET HERE

	For security during configuration, you'll need to put the IP address or
	network block *of the system where you are running your web browser*
	to the "Allow From" line.  Once you are done, you can probably say
	"Allow from all".

It wouldn't hurt my feelings if you got rid of the default deny from
the example configuration, I can imagine that might generate lots of
support requests.

In a related problem, the next bit (about configuring using the
web interface) also doesn't really say what URL you should access to
do the configuration.  I figured out from my apache logs that i
needed the URL /horde3 to work to get at horde in general, but it
didn't tell me where i needed to go do configure it.

I kept trying /horde3/conf.php since it was mentioned there.    Just
mentioning /horde3 as the entry point would be great.
