Hi Torsten,

thanks for the information, but actually the thing I don't understand is the 
procedure when patches are applied to exisiting openpkg src-rpms. This is 
related to the fact that I have only slight ideas how rpms work.
The build procedure seems quite complex (if you have no idea what's going on). 
So far I figured out it might work like that:
- get the original openpkg source-rpm
- extract the rpm to /kolab/RPM/SRC
- copy the patches to the temporary directory
- apply the patches to the original files
- start compiling
- build 2 new rpms (source and distribution-specific).

The part I don't get is the one where which patches get applied. I think I'll 
have a look at this again later.
