I am happy to announce some progress.


- fixed issue with nag controllers (improved
Core_Controller_RequestMapper) -> nag runs correctly now
- fixed issue with database migrations for composer-installed horde
libraries -> no longer need externally prepared db schema
- some minor configuration changes -> do not overwrite existing config
files on upgrade
- accessing webroot in the default configuration bounces you to /horde/.

- Some refactoring on the installer plugin (move ugly inline templates
into separate files)
- Support more apps and libs (kronolith, mnemo)
- Need some automation for keeping the maintaina/master forks up to date
with horde/master
- publish some first parts to packagist - needs discussion with horde core
