if there is a discussion to rename kdepim, than this is done upstream inside 
the kdepim community. So this should be happen at kde-pim at kde.org.

No kolab is not a KDE project ( see http://kolab.org ).

Yes there are packages form kolab directly but actully they conflict with 
packages inside debian/ubuntu. So if some user install the packages from their 
distribution and than switch to the kolab ppa, than it can break your kolab 
server. That's why there should be also an discussion about how to package the 
kolab server to make user experience better.

I'm really looking forward to be able to ship packages that are built the same 
way on all sources.
