This problem is currently stalled.

I planned to fix it by:
- packaging old ckeditor as a ckeditor3 package
- make php-horde-editor depends on it and update symlinks

Appart from the lack of time finishing the work (including making
ckeditor3 dfsg), the security team may forbid having an old ckeditor
in the archive.

I've asked this at:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-security/2014/11/msg00035.html but
received no response (I also forwarded the message to the Debian
security team).

Funding the work to port Horde to ckeditor 4 is the way forward. I
will propose this to the horde-dev ML.

The workaround are :
- https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=769031#15, or
- install files and directories from
(horde.git)/horde/framework/Editor/js/ckeditor into the debian package
directory /usr/share/horde/js/ckeditor/
