As a user of PHP, it's very inconvenient to be missing such a useful and widely
used piece of PHP. I'm doubly annoyed as a Horde hacker, as it requires PHP's
I understand ditching wu-imapd, etc. But c-client is still very useful,
especially in the PHP world.
Horde is, I believe, one of the most important free software projects out there
at the moment. Not many people are yet using the development branch of code,
but it has come (and is coming) a long way. It's thorough, stable, usable,
actively developed, and widely used (at least the old code base is widely
used). It has a very flexible and extensible framework, and it kicks the asses
of its competitors.
To overlook Horde is a big mistake. If users have to hack together weird sets
of custom-compiled RPMs to slap Horde on a Fedora box, that's going to annoy a
lot of people as Horde 3.0 is released.
Submit it to Fedora Extras currently at fedora.us, because that is where
it belongs. I do agree that custom RPMS maintained at dozens of
arbitary other locations are confusing, so instead you should maintain
it at the central collaborative project.
