Comments

if you are from EU, you don't need visa to travel to Ukraine. The visa requirement was dropped for Eurovision. The KDevelop site is misleading.

If you are traveling by air, it may be better and safer to take a bus (just outside of the terminal), rather than "unofficial" cabby at the Boryspil airport. Have a nice stay in Kiev.

The correct transliteration of Ukraine's capital (according to ISO) is Kyiv. It's time to leave behind the Soviet past.

What is this? A company listing Kolab and Kontact as one of their products?

Yes. And where's exactly the problem?

They can do this, as soon as they respect the licence (which they probably do) and they don't say they own the copyright (which they do: "based on Kroupware").

The KONSEC Kolab Server looks like a specialized Linux(?) distribution, giving you a dedicated groupware server running Kolab. It also looks like they do a branded version of Kontakt. All this has been done, to some degree by others before. Companies like Suse, RedHat, Linspire etc.
