A group of volunteers in the Twin Cities area has built an AX.25

network's back end is powered by Linux and the Citadel open source
groupware system.

Cool. Thanks for the link on LXer IG. We will be having a group think session this weekend for getting the backbone linking over RF working and will hopefully have some new news soon.

Subject: Outlook connector for Citadel is now available!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I have some good news to share with everyone.

Bynari has officially released the new version of their Outlook connector that supports the open standard data formats used by Citadel. What this means in practice is that you can use this product to fully connect Microsoft Outlook to your Citadel server -- mail, calendars, tasks, address books ... it all works.

Go here to learn more or to get your own copy of it:

Enjoy. :)

A couple of miscellaneous items.

* This room (CitaNews) is now available as a mailing list, to which you may subscribe.

* I wrote a nice little document tonight that neatly summarizes the rationale behind the Citadel user interface model. It's a good read for people who don't grok the whole rooms/floors/goto thing, and think that the conventional folder model is "the only right way." Read it at

Subject: 7.35 .deb upgrading

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hello everyone...

Since the 7.35 webcit package uses the debian libjs-prototype package, it won't upgrade unless you directly tell apt to do so:

apt-get install citadel-webcit

This is due to the bugfixing our debs which are about to enter Debian Lenny; Sorry for inconvenience.

Subject: Good news on Citadel + Fat client Integration

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


I'd like to tell you that two fat clients interoperate better thanks to our (social & patch sending) activities: 

Icedove/Thunderbird + Iceowl/Sunbird + SyncKolab fixed to work with citadel (daves Effort)

 (you might want to read for detail )

I triggered Carsten at the debian Groupware meeting to fix Kontacts IMAP/ACL troubles:

Which fixes troubles with offline Imap and Kolab1 Protocol in KDEPim too. 

So Both Products will better integrate with Citadel in their next releases.

Subject: openssl package weak in debian etch and Ubuntu

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


If you've installed Citadel on an debian Etch or Ubuntu system, you should recreate citadels SSL keys.

This is nessecary via both installation methods; Easy install and .deb

For details see


apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

(this should bring you a new openSSL library )

(deb) rm -f /etc/ssl/citadel/* 

(easy install) rm -f /usr/local/citadel/keys/*

and restart citadel to make it generate new keys.

If you've signed keys by an authority, you need to recreate and sign them too.

Note that you most probably will have to accept this new key at the clients.

Also note, that this does allso affect the private key from your SSH server and DSA private keys for SSH public-key authentication (if you didn't already know)

Subject: Bad News -RIP Maid Marion

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

For those who were part of the Citadel scene durring the 90's, perticularly in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you may remember Maid Maion.  Yesterday I received a call from Tigress letting me know that she had passed.  She had been fighting cancer for many years and it got the best of her.  She leaves behind a 4 year and many friends and family.  I will post more details about the arraingments when I get them.  As far as I understand, the service will be in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area on Monday. 

It's always a wakeup call when a young person passes from such a vicious killer!

RIP - Maid Marion!

We took a bit of damage from a near direct lightning hit last Monday while I was on the road.  One router and firewall replacement later and we're back in business.

Anyone else notice this on LinuxToday:

LinuxPlanet: "Citadel is 100% GPL, and doesn't play games with making either binary or source downloads easily available. If I had to describe Citadel in a word, it would be "simplicity". It is a complex application with a lot of power and flexibility, but it's easy to install and administer."

It's the first part of a two-part review of Citadel by Carla Schroeder, first published in Enterprise Networking Planet in April. Evidently it's been syndicated because it showed up on a bunch of other sites this morning.

Still nice to see it resurface from time to time.

It's a very positive review. Carla clearly groks how Citadel gets the job done.
