Dear list,

I've succesfully been running iCal server as a smallbusiness caldav server.
I did this on a Linux, thanks to the precise informations provided by 
Maxime Wacker

I get just one issue, which was the dateutil patch, which was 
conflicting according to the version of dateutil I fetched. I repatched 
the lib manually, here is the result :

--- setup.py    2007-05-09 14:55:46.000000000 +0200

I'm now interested in pluging the server to an existing ldap directory 
in order to authenticate the users. According to the wiki, 
OpenDirectoryService is the thing I should use. Is this DirectoryService 
somehow crossplatform ? How can it be configured to connect to the 
existing ldap directory, have you any doc about that ?

Best regards

Julien Chevalier
