that would mean the library libmapi.so can be used to replace the
existing library from the openchange package. That's not possible I
think. I agree that a conflict isn't the best solution to solve this. A
renaming of the library libmapi.so from the kopanocore package would be
the most desirable solution.

as mentioned from Guido in another email could you please discuss a
possible name change of libmapi.so with your colleagues?
