Members of the kdepim and OpenGroupware.org teams met at Magdeburg on the last
weekend of October to implement OpenGroupware.org support in Kontact. The effort
turned out to be a full success. After two days of ferocious hacking the team
consisting of Till Adam and Cornelius Schumacher from KDE and Helge Heß and
Marcus Müller from OpenGroupware.org had completed a first
working implementation for accessing the OpenGroupware.org server through Kontact.
This adds another Free Software system to the growing list of groupware servers
supported by KDE. A special aspect of this implementation is that it is
completely based on existing open standards like HTTP, WebDAV, iCalendar and
vCard and could serve as a model for a standard access to groupware servers. The
used protocol is documented as a draft RFC.
