-The Darwin Calendar Server is a standards-compliant server that allows multiple users to collaboratively share calendaring information. It provides a shared location on the network to store schedules, and allows users to send each other and manage invitations.
+The open source Calendar and Contacts Server project is a standards-compliant server implementing the CalDAV and CardDAV protocols. It provides a shared location on the network allowing multiple users to store and edit calendaring and contact information.
-In order to provide interoperability with multiple calendaring clients, the server implements the [http://ietf.osafoundation.org/caldav/index.html CalDAV] protocol, which is an extension of [http://www.webdav.org/ WebDAV], which is in turn an extension of [http://www.w3.org/Protocols/ HTTP].
+[http://caldav.calconnect.org/ CalDAV] is an Internet standard allowing a client to access scheduling information on a remote server. It extends the WebDAV (an HTTP-based protocol for data manipulation) specification and uses the iCalendar format for the data. The protocol is defined by [http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4791.txt RFC 4791]. It allows multiple clients access to the same information thus allowing cooperative planning and information sharing. Many server and client applications support the protocol.
+[http://carddav.calconnect.org/ CardDAV] is an address book client/server protocol designed to allow users to access and share contact data on a server. The CardDAV protocol is being developed by the IETF and is currently an internet draft.
+Calendar and Contact Server is presently implemented as two separate servers: [source:CalendarServer Calendar Server] and [source:ContactsServer Contacts Server]. The near-term plan is the merge these into one code base.
