No, and there won't be.
Notes wants LOTS and LOTS of handholding and support.
And then more. And then it will break anyway. And you
don't want to run it on anything that their tech support
and your people don't know really well.
And if you have more than 20 people, you want SMP.
"Put the Not in Notes"
The better answer is to evaluate what you need to do and
use something better than notes. I was told, once upon a,
that we needed "discussion groups, and email, and conferencing"
So we put up POP (at the time, IMAP now), and zephyr (IM circa
1989) and NNTP and CVS and web services that would view and serve docs
and take uploads and some tools to do chatting over web. Oh, and
a calendar server.
We didn't TELL them what it was.
They got onto the discussion groups. "but we need it to replicate
to offices around the world. Can this 'n-n-t-p' replicate?"
I *tried* not to laugh.
6 million dollars later, they had notes and mail went from one desk
to another within 6 hours!
I've also replaced it. Killed 15 Notes machines and put 40,000
students onto 1 IMAP server. That was good.
