I think the point I'm continuing to make is that it should support
caldav or something similar.  The protocol defines a protocol, so the
client applications themselves shouldn't matter, but we do need to
have a way to communicate with the calendar server.

My intention isn't to discount MediaWiki or Zikula as a possible
platform for a calendaring client, but to say that the features you
suggest are not what we're after here.  Instead I'd say that those two
applications could push/pull data from the calendar server (using

The events listed in the caldav server can be manipulated by these
other applications and probably through an API which could include
Access Control Lists based upon FAS rights.  I can see this being a
bit of an undertaking, but it can really benefit the Fedora Project as
a whole.

As I stated in my previous email, I've got a draft up of all the
features we'd like to see (it's pretty empty right now) and I'll
probably go ahead and list some of this email there.  But for those of
you who are interested in helping me get that wiki page more complete,

Keep the thoughts coming, I want to see this project succeed!
