We should really start referring to this as the "collaboration
server", especially if we're going to include it as a link available
in all distributions/environments. Ideally, we'd fall back to some
page which describes the benefits of having a collaboration server and
point to links for setting one up, if there isn't one available. I
have no idea how to do that.
