Hello, Over the past 10 years, Inverse has been developing SOGo and providing everything (software packages, documentation, etc.) completely free of charge. A massive number of organizations worldwide have successfully deployed SOGo and benefit for free from the continuous enhancements of the software. After many months of discussion and thinking, we made the decision to close down the public package repositories. From now on, in order to access the production builds of SOGo for various Linux distributions, you will need a proper support contract from Inverse. The options are listed here: https://sogo.nu/support/index.html#support-plans Payments can be made by credit card. We hope that this move will help Inverse to: increase its investments in SOGo accelerate SOGo v3 evolution by adding more features (S/MIME, alternate storage backends, etc.) expedite bugs fixing and small feature additions invest in gravitational projects extend its support to more Linux distributions create a VAR channel to resell and participate in providing support Tying up package repositories to a support agreement is important for us as Inverse strives to offer stellar support and we want to bring more value for the money to each customer. Current organizations that have a support contract with us will automatically get access to the package repositories. Official packages also offer the advantage of being thoroughly tested before they are released. SOGo will continue to remain entirely Free and Open Source. The source code will always be fully available and we will keep using the current licenses. Nightly builds will also remain available to all, as well as the ZEG configured with the latest software. Thanks for your support and understanding. Together, we all make SOGo better!

Hi Ludovic,

These reasons are absolutely understandable, but I think the community needs some extra documentation about the package creation for various distributions (RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu what supported by you with repositories earlier).
I think some of us have infrastructure to keep 3rd party repositories for compatible packages with the olders.

Example, I can build packages for Ubuntu, and serve it for other interested community users. Not all branches, but the main stable v3 branch is distributable by me - after some days later than the stable release is launched.

The main point is the fully compatibility with older (created by you) packages.
If you have build scripts or anything what can help us in this procedure, that should be awesome.

Thanks a lot,
Peti
