Ugh. It really stinks to put in all the work in a timely fashion and
then have it ignored until it's too late. :(

On the other hand, unless the release team wants to make a huge
exception for kolabd and one of the maintainers actually can be bothered
to upload the packages, removing these:

and possibly providing backports after the release might be the more
viable option to move things forward from here.

Kind regards


P.S.: Depending on how long you have been involved in kolab-maintenance,
asking the uploaders to enable you to upload via the Debian Maintainer
process might be a good idea to prevent things like this in the future.
