Kubuntu: KDE: A final call for testers. And yes we have PIM!

It’s a lovely weekend.. to test! 🙂
After a long grueling night of rebuilds I have a working PIM suite with kolab support!

To test:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/staging-misc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Do things as you normally do, and report back any crashes or unexpected behavior.

Once you are done testing it is very important to remove the staging PPA.
sudo apt install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:kubuntu-ppa/staging-misc

Thank you!
Scarlett
