The idea is that with a second target server / user account credentials, the 
groupware data can be converted from an OpenPKG Kolab 2.3 onto a Kolab 3.0 
installation from native packages - or even a (former) Kolab 2.4 to 3.0, but 
both would be native packages anyway so the upgrade could be in-place rather 
then from one system to another system.

I suppose since the upgrade tool does not do mail, either offlineimap or 
imapsync could first take care of an initial data migration, if at all needed, 
then the upgrade tool could take care of the format change.

Kind regards,
