  Description     : Zimbra Collaboration Suite (Open Source Edition) groupware server

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is server software for messaging and
collaboration - email, group calendaring, contacts, and web document
management and authoring.

--

The upstream binary distribution contains nonstandard copies of
postfix, apache, &c.  It looks like a lot of work to make Zimbra
integrate correctly with standard Debian packages of these projects,
and even MORE work to make Zimbra comply with Debian Policy (e.g. the
FHS).  I'd prefer a coordinated effort towards an official Debian
package, rather than every sysadmin just making his own private,
ad-hoc attempt.  I don't have the resources to take the lead on such a
large, messy package, but I'm willing to help work on it.

Upstream use Perforce (p4) as their VCS; the client is an ITP
(#445866).  I eventually found some notes about how to access Zimbra's
repo at http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Franklin_README

I suggested the (uninformative) package name "zcs" because it is in
keeping with the existing "zdesktop" client-side package that is
provided by Zimbra to the Ubuntu Hardy "Partners" repository.  AFAICT
neither upstream nor Ubuntu have shown any interest in packaging the
server side as a policy-compliant package.

thanks

i'll start publishing first packages soon on 
vmware.debian-maintainers.org, but it will take quite some time until 
they are ready for debian though (not for squeeze anymore anyway).

Regards,
Daniel

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of zcs back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting zcs, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 498316 ITP: zcs -- Zimbra Collaboration Suite
 owner 498316 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <498316@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
