In the news: Zarafa

So, Zarafa is getting a lot of press attention:

some of it is fairly unflattering:

I'm a bit uncomfortable with this myself; the availability of Zarafa in
Fedora seems to be being read in ways in which we certainly didn't
intend it (as an aspect of commercialization, as some kind of Red
Hat-parachuted feature and hence an indication of RH's future
directions, etc).

I'm wondering if perhaps we should pull Zarafa's mention as a 'feature'
of Fedora 13, or if not that, then certainly develop a more coherent
story about its inclusion, what it's for, why it's in Fedora, and the
whole 'open core' angle on it...

What do people think?
