You may have a look at Scalable Opengroupware.org (SOGo), a  
opensource CalDAV server:


We, at Inverse, have been working actively in the past few months on  
this project, so much we have a specific branch in the SVN  
repository. You can read more about our contributions on our site:


Even though it's coded in Objective-C, we haven't tried nor  
documented the installation of SOGo on Mac OS X. Since we don't have  
access to a developer version of Leopard, I don't know how well it  
can communicate with the new CalDAV-enabled iCal.app. However, it's  
very promising as both should speak the same language (WebDAV/ 
CalDAV). SOGo is currently fully compatible with the Mozilla Calendar  
applications (Lightning and Sunbird).

I would really like to know the answer ;)  http://openconnector.org/ ?
