I found the reject email:


We had the choice between no kolab at all or remove the RFC.
#361846 was the result because the problem was in openldap, too and
there it was fixed:

* Remove schema files that contain text from IETF RFCs from the upstream
     source since that text is not DFSG-free.  Instead, install stripped
     versions of those schema files containing only the functional
     interface specifications, a comment explaining why this is needed, and
     a pointer to the relevant RFC.  (Closes: #361846)

Maybe we could do it the same way but I didn#t checked what this means.:)
