My recent excursion into Debian packaging with Kolab has involved a tour of lots of different tools and services, but it started out with a brief attempt to build the existing packages with pbuilder: a tool that has become fairly familiar to me in the process of experimenting with Debian packages and even

The new Kolab 3.1 documentation is written in reStructuredText, using a tool called Sqhinx which was originally created for the Python documentation.
It is much easier to edit than the Publican notation used before for the Kolab 3.0 documentation.

Sometimes it is just quicker to test the building of a CentOS package locally, than to wait for the OBS server to build it.
You also get a chance to search the BUILD directory for files that you might be missing.
It’s quite annoying when you click somebody’s name or email on a
web page and that Firefox cannot figure out how to rely on your
system preferences to send an email.
For instance, my system is set up so that when I click on an email
address or mailto: link anywhere, gnome-terminal opens up with
mutt ready to send an email. For some reason, Firefox tries to
figure out all by itself which program I should use.
This should work with any carddav server, but if you use Kolab’s
carddav server here’s some extra tip!
The problem you want to fix is: it’s impossible to remember
everyone’s email address. This problem is solved by most email
programs because they are linked to a contact list already.
However, for those of us using mutt, there’s no full contact
integration so you need to rely on something else.
Here at Kolab Systems, we've all been excited about the launch of MyKolab.com as a professional, secure, privacy-aware-for-a-change, commercial service offering to those appreciative of what privacy means exactly - our customers.
The results of the first part of the bar
announced earlier today. I passed! So I’ve got no more excuses
now: I’ve got to work to pass the second part (oral exams). Of
course, that’s kind of a relief because with these kinds of exams
you’re never really sure if you succeeded.
To make things even better today, it looks like Kolab on Debian is
going to get some love from the Free Software community!
