OpenWebmail is an open source webmail system which is designed to replace Outlook (which face it, isn't hard!), but also offer spam filtering, out of office notices and everything else you'd expect from a fully-fledged webmail system
Note for reviewers : due to a large number of permission issues with this package, I've fixed the permissions and repackaged. This was also required in order to get it to install correctly (and create sane directories under BUILD. The tarball is tar.bz2 and not .gz - I don't therefore expect the md5sums to be the same.

IMHO, this is not good solution. I think it will be better if you report
these issues to upstream and upstream will fix it. Also, you can include
patch to fix these issues. IMHO, that's better than repackaging.
The repackaging is for two purposes
1. To install into BUILD so that it actually works (the original spec installed
directly into /var)
2. The permissions
I've sent the changes upstream but haven't had a reply yet
Re comment #1 and #2
You *really* should use pristine/upstream sources and patch/fix them instead,
else a reviewer cannot (reasonably) confirm that they match upstream.
Fair comment. I'll see what I can respin. Still no reply from upstream on the
fixes submitted though.
spec file and srpm give 404 errors
Still 404 errors...
I think Paul is unable to work on Fedora for the time being. I'll go ahead and
set NEEDINFO and close this ticket out if there's no response in a week; it can
always be reopened if he returns, or someone else can submit this package.
Closing as promised.
