[Evolution] Re: [discuss] GROUPWARE - what is it, anyways?

phpGW seems like a product designed to get the job done.  An OGS would

while being flexible, and based upon standards.

And doesn't instantly fall prey to feature creep. 

So, what is 'groupware'?
        * calendaring
        * email access
        ? newsgroup access
        * email alias/list management
        * shared file access (webdav?)
        * todo lists
        * project/progress tracking
        * address book(s)

Anybody think of anything else that is clearly 'groupware' and not in
there (and otoh, also clearly doen't belong to the 'not groupware'
category like say database access).

In the case some of those, a certain subset of things people can dream up
(like in the case of todo lists) will have to be decided.

Where does Mozilla fit into this?
