Bug Description

I'm hoping this groupware app can be included in Ubuntu, i'm sure a lot of people would be excited to see it in the next LTS universe.
From what i've seen on the net, its a great product, and even the community version provides great support.
I'm not sure if the licence is ok, but afaik it is.

is this license suitable for universe or multiverse?

Well it's not really different from for instance original BSD license (with the advertising clause) and there are applications with similar or more severely limitations in the Multiverse... So it should fit in there just fine in case someone wanted to.
