kolab-cli is provided by the pykolab source package, so maybe that package's 
build process is failing on Ubuntu 14.04.

I imagine some indicator in the OBS admin panel might show that there is a 
build failure somewhere, but the only thing I see when browsing around is the 
helpful "locked" status. For example, for those with a login:


But I'm guessing that at some point pykolab just didn't build and that's why 
you don't see any packages in the repository. Maybe you could try and build 
the package yourself on Ubuntu 14.04 and find out what the error is, but 
that's perhaps a rather more complicated process that demands some familiarity 
with Debian/Ubuntu development.
