Currently, it looks like it still requires its own builds of a few

Stuff (apparently) not in Fedora:
-PyKerberos (might just be named something slightly different)

Stuff in Fedora, but simply not used for whatever reason:
-vobject (we have python-vobject)

Stuff in Fedora, but still heavily patched for CalendarServer:
-Twisted (the web2 portion, specifically)
-xattr ("requires Bob Ippolito's implementation")

That said, I have it up and running on an F11 host at home right now,
satisfying everything else w/Fedora packages.

Fedora 11 has libevent 1.4.5. The calendarserver auto-build script
tries to build 1.4.8. If you install libevent 1.4.11 from rawhide, its
perfectly happy with that.
