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

Hi Jan, hi Peter, Martin, Ralf,

after building Debian packages for the EPL version of egroupware for the last year, I also started building packages on opensuse's buildserver. They can be downloaded at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/eGroupWare/Debian_5.0/

After I talked to Ralf about Debian dropping egroupware, we decided that I should try to take care of the packages there as well. Therefore I corrected most of the lintian errors and warnings in the packages we had provided on opensuse's platform so far and uploaded them to mentors.d.n.

I'd really appreciate it, if someone picked up on those and sponsored my work.

If you have any questions regarding my work or myself, feel free to ask at any time.

Thanks and best regards,

If I'm going to maintain EGroupware in Debian, everyone can expect
same-time releases of Debian packages (to experimental), as the other
rpm packages or archives of EGroupware.
I don't know, if you have noticed, but egroupware[1] was removed from
testing, which results in releasing the next stable version of Debian
_without_ egroupware. Actually the package has _no_ maintainer, so there is
no work done to change this soon (and Debian ist freezing in the next days,
so there is no time to relaxe, if this is intended to).
While you released 1.6.003 these days I was remembered about the problem.
As staying egroupware seems "most important", the situation seems even more

since Ralf did nothing (beside spreading the word), the packages are removed from testing and unstable.

Today I accidentaly found the packages from Lars on mentors.d.n:


Maybe Peter or Martin are willing to sponsor the packages?

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
