+ <formalpara id="form-Kolab_Groupware_Flavors-Kolab_Vanilla">

+ <formalpara id="form-Kolab_Groupware_Flavors-Hosted_Kolab">
+ <title>Hosted Kolab</title>
+ <para>
+ Hosted Kolab is the flavor targeted specifically at hosting providers (ISP, ASP, Cloud) offering Kolab Groupware environments to multiple customers, possibly through multiple resellers.

+ <para>
+ Furthermore, the Kolab software are divided in a community version, and an enterprise version. The community version naturally moves forward a little faster and is subject to change a lot more so then the enterprise version. The community version of a product series will only become available as an enterprise version after thorough Quality Assurance and Certification of partner products.
