The Infrastructure group has a rather ongoing project to try and find a
really good calendar server system (and then, obviously, package it) to
be used as the official Fedora calendaring system (then we could
schedule events and all that good stuff in an official Fedora server,
and people could access them via CalDAV or web, and all would be roses).
It's proved a bit tricky, though, to find a really perfect option. See
for most of the details on this project. At present, we seem to be
looking at one called Calagator: http://calagator.org/ .

There's a sort of 'agreed-upon-right-way-of-doing-this' candidate for
this particular need, which is a nice modern GTK+ app and based on
gstreamer...but I can't quite pull the name out of long-term storage at
present. Someone will probably know what I mean, though. The one most
people use (as the one I'm talking about is still a bit alpha) is
mediatomb, which is also in Fedora already. Unless this provides
something significant the other options don't, it may not be the best
place to start, since it looks a bit complex.
