Thank you Henrique and Sven for your feedback.
Your decision is fine for me because I see the need for a good cyrus
package without the view of the additional kolab patches.
As Sven wrote I think the strategy the Kolab package will follow is to
take the cyrus packaging as the starting point and add the kolab patches
to our package. Its the same way we are working right now. If we will
have comments to the cyrus packages we will come back to you again.:)
