This went out to d-d-a already but I figured that this might be of interest here too:
The fifth Debian Groupware Meeting was held in the LinuxHotel, Essen, Germany. Eight persons attended which is an all time high! This is a short summary of what happened during the weekend:
We pushed a ESR (extended support release) version of icedove including l10n and the calendaring extension to unstable. By cherry-picking lots of build-fixes from iceweasel we made the testing transition getting rid of the old 3.X version.
Since iceowl (the standalone calendar) is not maintained upstream anymore we're keeping it in experimental only for now. A new version got uploaded including updated l10n.
A new upstream version of evolution-mapi was upload to sid fixing an FTBFS.
d-push 1.5.8 (the rebranded version of z-push) got uploaded to unstable including translation updates and adaption to php 5.4.0.
Lots of progress was made on packaging SOGo and related components and it's now quiet close to an upload to sid.
Work on OpenChange included looking into using the version in Debian for SOGo packaging as well as fixing Samba4 issues that broke (among other things) the OpenChange build.
Progress was made on packaging Zarafa ZCP for Debian (rebranded as giraffe). The packages are working but rebranding is not yet complete.
About 60 evolution bugs where either closed or commented on.
As usual the Groupware page got updated.
The meetings 5th anniversary was celebrated with a barbecue.
