It has undergone a long way and major changes to switch from depending on 
the old gnustep-make v1/libFoundation to gnustep-make v2 and gnustep-base.
Further OpenGroupware now depends on the SOPE fork maintained by the 
SOGo developers at Inverse. A lot of changes went into OpenGroupware, and 
also SOPE to resolve compatibility and stability issues.
