Hi :

There have been more and more questions regarding Horde installations on the 
lists recently.  It seems that people are following the instructions found :


That document has instructions for installing the CVS version of Horde.  With 
the recent stable releases (With Kolab support), wouldn't it be better to 
point people to install the stable release of Horde as opposed to trying your 
luck with a CVS version?

I also have a shell script (with some additional files) that I wrote to fully 
install Horde with Kolab.  It downloads the packages, unpacks, installs, 
creates the DB, VFS, custom changes for hooks, and Kolab changes.

It works with PostgreSQL, and the system web server.  I do this for a couple 
of reasons.

1.  It means I do not have to recompile anything in Kolab. (Which is nicer 
from a system administration point of view).
2.  It means I do not have to run the web mail on the same server as the Kolab 

I have spoken with my employer and they have given me the go ahead to release 
this work back to the community.  So I can do that, I'm just not sure exactly 
how to go about it.  What would be the desired way to provide this to people?
