Nothing yet. I bounced your question off of one of the helpful gnomes at
Ximian. His reply:


I wish I had something cool to say. Basically, we're looking into the
possibilities, but we don't have anything firm one way or
another.  There are a lot of options out there, but you're still going
to have to roll your own as far as the server-side goes right

There's phpgroupware  and some other Open server projects (plus of
course the standard LDAP/IMAP/ical stuff) but I'm not
really sure how far along they are.
