Bug#504283: Bug#526878: Bug#504283: Bug#471801: egroupware adoption or removal?

Hi Jan,

a wasn't aware of that.

It's a shame :-(

Thought I dont know what more I can do, then to express that I'm willing
to maintain it or help someone else to maintain it. The decision about
it is with Debian.

What we (Stylite GmbH and EGroupware project) can do is building Debian
packages on openSUSE build service and making a repository with
Debian/Ubuntu packages available via that infrastructure.

I agree that's not the same as having EGroupware in Debian and Ubuntu.
