My approach of course is... rigorous at best to say the least.

My initial target is to preserve the apt-get/aptitude equivalent of "yum 
install kolab", for a single-host Kolab deployment that can be set up with a 
single issue of "setup-kolab".

The kolab meta-package[1] pulls in the following (meta-)packages, those of 
which marked with '*' coming from the same source package as 'kolab' itself:

- kolab-cli,
- kolab-conf,

  Both sub-packages of pykolab[2].

- kolab-imap*,

  Itself depending on the default IMAP server for Kolab, Cyrus IMAP[3], for 
which we're shipping version series 2.4.

- kolab-ldap*,

  Itself depending on the default LDAP server for Kolab, 389 Directory 
Server[4-17], rebuilt from work performed by others,

- kolab-mta*,

  Itself depending on the default MTA server for Kolab, Postfix. We're using 
the native Debian packages here.

- kolab-saslauthd,
- kolab-server,

  Both sub-packages of pykolab[2].

- kolab-webadmin,

  The Kolab Web administration panel package[18].

- kolab-webclient*

  Itself depending on the roundcube[19], roundcube-plugins-extra[20] and 
roundcube-plugins-kolab[21] packages.

Kind regards,
