We would like to announce that the Kroupware Project organizes a hack 
fest on the first weekend in January 2003 at Intevation GmbH in 
Osnabrück, Germany.

The aim of the meeting is to port the current Kolab client[1] to the 
Kaplan framework and merge the result into CVS HEAD.

To have short decision paths and good on-site expertise, we have invited 
some of the developers of involved applications (mainly KAddressBook, 
Kaplan, KOrganizer and KMail) to participate. We are glad that every 
one of them managed to attend.

We regret that space[2] and money[3] constraints force us to limit the 
number of invitations sent out; but we also believe that throwing more 
developers at the task wouldn't result in port and merge be done 

The list of attendees is as follows:

from the Kroupware Project:
- Kalle Dalheimer (attends as time permits)
- David Faure
- Steffen Hansen
- Marc Mutz
- Bernhard Reiter
- Lutz Rogowski
- Bo Thorsen
- Karl-Heinz Zimmer

from the KDE-PIM and KMail developers:
- Ingo Klöcker (for KMail)
- Tobias Koenig (for KAddressBook, PIM in general)
- Daniel Molkentin (for Kaplan)
- Don Sanders (for Kaplan)
- Cornelius Schumacher (for KOrganizer, PIM in general)
- Günter Schwann (for KOrganizer group scheduling)

We announce this in advance to take advantage of possible input from the 
Community, esp. contributors from overseas. If someone has any comment 
on the matter, don't hesitate to post it to kroupware at kde.org, where 
also replies to this announcement should go, if any.

However, please understand that this is a Kroupware Project meeting. We 
don't have the resources to focus on more than the aims of the meeting 
detailed above, so suggestions for additional KDE-PIM, KMail or even 
Kolab features are just a waste of bandwidth ;-)

In the name of the Kroupware Project,

[1] As found in the various kroupware_branches
[2] We use Intevation GmbH's rooms
[3] The companies of the Kroupware Project (Erfrakon, Intevation GmbH,
 Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB) pay travel and accomodation expenses
 for most KDE developers and all Kroupware Project participants.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.      -- Benjamin Franklin
