Packaging Giraffe

Giraffe is the Open Source variant of the Zarafa Collaboration Platform packaged for Debian.


Current State

The packages are not available by the Debian repositories, the packaging process is not yet finished.

To Do

  • track 7.1.9 upstream instead of 7.1.5
  • Debranding:
    • Remove Zarafa logos from Zarafa Web Access

    • Rename the packages from zarafa-* to giraffe-*

    • Replace the favicon in giraffe-webaccess

    • Don't rename any binaries/directories
      • Should we better rename all or none of them?
      • We still have to provide a place to mention Zarafa (see their license)!
  • Fix debian/copyright

  • Fixing missed copyright file in package giraffe and giraffe-webaccess

  • Fix Lintian errors and warnings
  • Review and forward patches against libical and libvmime on upstream. For now it seems we can run with the versions in sid.

  • Move dlopen'ed libs to private directory
  • Remove embedded copies of fckeditor via the dfsg-clean branch in git, use fckeditor package

    • Partially done, we need to create DFSG source via import filter.
  • Remove embedded copy of php-webclient-ajax/client/widgets/swfupload/swfupload.swf use of libjs-swfupload instead

  • Use Debconf to generate the initial configuration
    • database name
    • database user
    • database login
    • place of the database (local or remote)
    • more needed?
  • Use dbconfig-common to generate the initial database configuration

    • installing giraffe-server breaks without this
  • Package/Debrand webapp (which seems possible since it is AGPL3, too)
  • Provide licensed in non-free???
  • Test full functionality
    • We'd need some Outlook users here, too...
