Next to the enterprise version, they also provide community packages for RHEL and CentOS. The source code is available from their Git repositories. An openSUSE Build Service provides additional testing packages for Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. Unfortunately, the Gentoo support for Kolab seemed to starve for some reason. We only found
