I agree on the points made.
We should find a way to distribute experimental extensions.
Horde is now part of the main distribution, 
I think we should open an "extras" distribution which has Squirrelmail and 
potentially other packages.

In many studies I see the Kolab solution to be downgraded, because it does not 
directly come with a mailinglist manager, a chat and a wiki server. The 
design idea was to be modular which is good, but some reviewers do not seem 
to fully understand this. Seriously: We need to unlock this potential to 
users that do not already know how to do this.
