It might need some template modifications for display, but you could allow users to submit events and so on by logging in with their FAS ID.  However, I am sure there are better standalone solutions out there, if you're happy to maintain a separate tool.

I don't know, part of me wants to look at calendarserver, but I can't
find what the licensing is there.  It looks like maybe it's a ruby
project?   I looked around on the site and there's no clear link to
any good information on its licensing.


As far as zikula, while I think the calendaring of Zikula is great, I
wonder if we really need a fully blown CMS to manage our calendaring?
In this case, it seems to me that we need *just* calendaring and not
much else.  I'd like an easy way for people to interact with the
calendar from their client applications and update the calendar.  I'd
also like it to only do that if they have the rights to modify
calendar events for their particular group(s) in FAS.

Can Zikula do that?  My thought is that Zikula is more of a "do it on
the server" type application and can't handle input from a calendar
client using caldav (or others).

Maybe it can do all of the above and more.  My theory is that we need
to create a wiki page with the feature set we need and get the thing
that matches closest to our needs.  I'd be happy to start that effort
early next week.  If anyone else wants to create it first, I'd be
happy to help their page instead of mine.
