I think there's everything what is needed. The fact that there are quite good existing
plugins (like Kolab's Calendar) confirm that. If there's something missing we're open to
add such functionality.

It's probably not caused by missing functionality of core but rather by some not backward
compatible changes, or new features and lack of time to catch up with these on plugins'
side. As for the collaboration, there's nothing really organized, other than the fact I
and Thomas are also working on some external plugins and we're open to any plugin API
