At WWDC I had asked some questions about the OD integration of the  
iCal Server in the WWDC session on caldav. That week I built the  
early code that was out there and posted an article about it here:  
<http://www.afp548.com/article.php?story=20060809100313543>. Since  
then I've been looking the last day or so to integrate the server  
into an existing 10.4 OD server. It all seems simple enough and I did  
see your recently posted OD article here: <http://trac.macosforge.org/ 
projects/calendarserver/wiki/OpenDirectory> which confirmed my own  
conclusions on how the server functions.

I do have some questions though...

1. Are there publicly available schema mods to apply? As I work on  
this project for publication on AFP548.com I am trying to be very  
conscious of NDA issues and I am not looking to use _any_ of the 10.5  
info I have from the WWDC preview build. Also if the only NDA safe  
answer is to create our own CalendarPrinicpalURI attribute then I  
assume we should go ahead and register with IANA for our own  
enterprise numbering to create OIDs to prevent any future conflicts.

2. On one of my test servers at work I created the  
CalendarPrincipalURI and assign it to a user. I then used the default  
repository.xml to run the caldav server. It removed the 'admin' user  
created by the repository-dev.xml, but failed to create any new user  
principals. Is this something that should be working in the current  

I don't have the python skills to help much with the codebase, but I  
can certainly help with OD integration testing on 10.4 installations.  
Our readers have been clamoring for a calendaring server for years  
now and they always provide a lot of good feedback on thing like this.

Any tips for getting OD integration running on Tiger would be  
appreciated. If the answer is, "Wait for a few more builds." then  
that is fine too.

Thanks for your time,
