I left a comment as well:


Rather than focus on this particular situation in Munich, it discusses how the 
body of available Free Software work (focusing here on calendaring and 
groupware) may not convincingly offer obvious solutions to organisations, and 
it suggests why this might be happening and what might be done to rectify such 


P.S. The article is now freely viewable. I have previously seen people post 
subscriber links to mailing lists, usually with the explicit permission of the 
authors and editors. Indeed, I've seen the LWN staff post subscriber links to 
mailing lists themselves.
