How do you know that they are unmaitained? kolab-cyrus-imapd is in a
bad shape, but this primarly comes from its parent package

There is some work ongoing in SVN to make the kolabd package depend on
the standard cyrus-imapd (with important configuration changes). It is
not uploaded yet because of lack of time (mainly from me, only active

Removal from testing is probably the right thing to do, but *with
