Hello Florian,

I'm cc-ing pkg-kolab list.

This is a good news. I'm not an ubuntu user myself, but I try to keep
the packages in a good shape in ubuntu as well.

Regarding kolab, there are currently two major bugs:
- move/link webadmin files as described in

- set SLAPD_CONF=/etc/ldap/slapd.conf in /etc/default/slapd -
kolab_bootstrap seems not to support new cn=config tree
(found in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kolabd/+bug/469884)

I think that those (ubuntu specific) bugs should be fixed before
asking inclusion in main.

IMO, you can fill the MIR bug an report it back here (should you
create one per package?).
