2.4 isn't in 'server.git' at all. It's not in kolab-server.git either. Those 
two repositories are OpenPKG 

Please see http://git.kolab.org - I've now made it so the 2.x repositories are 
distinctly marked as "2.x prior to 2.4".

The relevant repositories for code we are upstream for are at the top;

- kolab-schema - Kolab LDAP schema extensions,
- kolab-wap - Web Administration Panel + API,
- pykolab - the Server and utilities implementation,
- roundcubemail-plugins-kolab - the plugins needed for Roundcube to become a 
Kolab client.

Naturally, we also care about the dependencies for these packages - hence the 
version matrix mentioned earlier.

Well, considering most packages have rendered somewhat irrelevant (kolabd, 
libkolab-perl, kolab-webadmin), I don't think that's necessarily the best 

Please consider the aforementioned, and the work already done in various APT 
packaging repositories.
