Bug#959151: kopano-server is built without KCOIDC support

Martin Wolf
Package: kopano-server
Version: 8.7.0-3

|Severity: important|

The Kopano server is built without KCOIDC support, thuswhen enabling e.g.

  kcoidc_issuer_identifier = https://meet.example.net

in /etc/kopano/server.cfg, this leads to the followingerrors in the
/var/log/kopano/server.log file:

  Thu Apr 30 01:39:41 2020: [error  ] Incoming OIDC token, but this
server was built without KCOIDC support.
  Thu Apr 30 01:39:41 2020: [warning] Authentication by plugin failed
for user "<user>": Trying to authenticate failed: <user> not found in
LDAP; username = <user>

Is there any chance for enabling KCOIDC during build-time?

KCOIDC support is necessary for Kopano Meet, otherwise the integration
doesn't work (e.g. accessing contacts).

currently it's unlikely that kopanoserver will get support for this no
matter if within Debian unstable/testing or even somehow for the stable
release.

Enabling kcoidc support is requiring a packaged version of libkcoidc for
Debian which isn't done yet.

https://github.com/Kopano-dev/libkcoidc

We lacking behind the latest releases of kopanocore already. This is due
time constrains and difficulties to cherry-pick needed fixes for the
current version of kopanocore in testing and trying them to also provide
these for the stable release.

If you want to step up and want try to get libkoidc packaged for Debian
we will happily sponsor any possible upload.
Unfortunately libkcoidc is using some Go stuff which we don't have real
experience with. That's the main reason we don't have done a closer look
at this yet.

Hello Carsten,

this is really frustrating to hear.

But please don't see this as critique, I am happy that you and
giraffe-maintainers provide us with software, we would not be getting
otherwise in a stable manner.

Sadly I can't help you, because I never built a package on debian
before, I just have limited experience with fedora, also neither do I
have knowledge of "Go".
I have not looked into it too closely because it develops and changes so
fast ...

I don't know if this is possible with debian policy, but why don't you
open a Patreon account like Ondřej Surý for Apache / PHP. I bet we could
get some real money together to pay more developers. Also maybe you
could reach out to Mr. Bartels from Kopano, because it should be in
their interest as well to have a wider userbase, shouldn't it?

Best regards

Martin Wolf
