I was looking for one of these the other day as well :-)

The one I came across was mod_caldav it seems quite simple.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/modcaldav/

It depends on mod_dav_acl which isn't in Fedora but I got as far as a
few issues with the build and haven't had another chance to have a
look at it.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/moddavacl/

Cheers,
Peter
