Kontact & OpenGroupware

Members of the kdepim and teams met at Magdeburg on the last weekend of October to implement support in Kontact. The effort turned out to be a full success. After two days of ferocious hacking the team consisting of Till Adam and Cornelius Schumacher from KDE and Helge He� and Marcus M�ller from had completed a first working implementation for accessing the server through Kontact. This adds another Free Software system to the growing list of groupware servers supported by KDE. A special aspect of this implementation is that it is completely based on existing open standards like HTTP, WebDAV, iCalendar and vCard and could serve as a model for a standard access to groupware servers. The used protocol is documented as a draft RFC."
