Kolab server will unfortunately not be in lenny (it took to much time
to upload it), but the cyrus-kolab-* are.

Current packages in unstable, 2.2.0, are stable ;). They are intended
for lenny but probably work for etch also (not tested). Kolab server
is feature equivalent to OpenPKG packages (IMHO), without Kolab horde
web client. Upgrading from etch should work (more testing is needed).

I have prepared kolab server 2.2.1beta1 packages. They are stable and
feature equivalent to OpenPKG packages. I have added a new
kolab-webclient package. It works but:
- it doesn't use latest horde versions
- it doesn't include all kolab specific patches
So, it is not completely feature complete, but I don't know what is
missing (feel free to make a list)

Installation instructions are here:

We, the maintainers of "Debian-native Kolab" packages, are in a team
(<http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/pkg-kolab>). Currently, I am the only
regular committer (help is appreciated), but there are several testers

I have updated some pages on the kolab wiki about how to report
problems in native packages:
<https://wiki.kolab.org/index.php/Problem_reporting> is the entry
point, and links to

So the process for Debian native is as follow:
* Take a look at open bugs
* browse the Archives
pkg-kolab-devel ]
* ask on pkg-kolab-devel
pkg-kolab-devel ]
* fill a bug in Debian bug tracking system [http://bugs.debian.org/ ]
