I'd love to see a calendar server in Fedora, though TBH when I looked at
Apple's long ago it was a bit daunting; it seemed like one of those
cross-platform hacks that is very much -not- nicely integrated with the
OS (I don't remember the details; weird file hierarchies or private
copies of libraries or ...?).  Maybe it's better now.  But if not, that
may be a hiccup.  But I'd say give it a shot.  I'd help test it.  :)

FWIW I looked at DAViCal (http://rscds.sourceforge.net/) too and it
seemed like an interesting possibility as well.
