Bug Description

Kontact provides the functionality to connect to Novell Groupwise for as long as i know it.
After upgrading from Hardy straight to Jaunty, i couldn't connect to Groupwise anymore and Kontact complained about a missing "kio_groupwise".
I finally found it in the package "kdepim-dev" and manually extracted it from the .deb and moved it into its destined location.

I think - if Kontact allows you to connect to Novell Groupwise resources - the library should also be part of the package that all the other connectors are in. From my point of view it doesn't make sense (and is counter-intuitive) that you have to install "kdepim-dev" just to use a functionality that should work out of the box from the viewpoint of Kontact (apart from the user being forced to install tons of dependency packages just for one file)...

kdepim-dev: /usr/lib/kde4/kio_groupwise.so

.sos in lib/kde4/ are mostly not just links (unlike most of those plain .so in lib/), thus having this file in -dev is indeed very wrong and indeed preventing the use of groupwise in Kontact.

Course of action:
* Check if this is an issue in Debian
** If it is, get it fixed there and ensure it gets merged into Kubuntu packaging (fortunately merging is in progress right now)
** If it is not, get the fix applied to the kdepim packaging branch
* Prepare a stable release update (see ubuntu wiki for process description) to get this changed in 9.04 so that Alexander can access groupwise again :)

Alexander, thank you very much for this report, we'll try to get the issue resolved as soon as possible.

There's a kdepim-groupware package in Debian that we didn't have in Jaunty which has this library. (We've merged this for Karmic)
I'm not sure, then, if a change in Debian's packaging is required anymore.

So it would be best to fix it in Jaunty and test without fix in Karmic. If there's still a problem we can fix it before RC!?

Ok, here's the patch.

I added the missing conflicts/replaces to the patch for jaunty and uploaded to jaunty-proposed

sorry for the delay

Accepted kdepim into jaunty-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Anyone who can test the proposed package? If not, the proposed update will be removed again. Thanks!

This update has been in jaunty-proposed for half a year or longer, without any testing feedback. I removed the jaunty-proposed package again.
