I was going to respond to this, but then i realized...
every couple of months we get a list of questions like this and I make
an effort to answer them.  They always result in responses like "X
does this and Y does this" and "you should work on this".  Well, YOU
work on it.  This is 100% volunteer project, we have no funding, no
corporate backing, no full time, or even part time, developers,
bug/patch maintainers, QA team, nothing.  Why not?  No one volunteers
for these tasks.  We know the faults all too well, but we have to EAT
so things like documentation goes missing.

find a flaw, someone will probably fix it.  want better docs, write them.

Horde seems to be showing information from different applications and not just 
the one you defined as home. What am I missing?

The installation talks about "email authentication". I do not remember seeing anything 
specifically about "SMTP".

When I load doc/install/index.html I get the "Installation & Security HOWTO". This has a page 
"Pre setup Tasks" which talks about this directory. I find no directory named "files" 
anywhere in the installation package. I created the directory and set the permissons. I does not work.

You talked about "the install howto linked from the download". Does this mean the HOWTO 
provided with the package is wrong, incomplete, etc.? In any event, the link "please read the 
Install HOWTO" brings me to what appears to be the same HOWTO.

Do need to follow the steps the section "Filemanager group file sharing" in 
order to configure infolog?

Then I say don't include them in the tarball.
