[CalendarServer-users] vCard / CardDAV support in DCS

IMHO from Apple's perspective I believe they will be expecting LDAP/ 
OpenDirectory for contacts, personally I would expect that CardDAV is  
outside the scope of of the CalendarServer and believe CalendarServer  
would be expecting other services would handle things like CardDAV.  
This of course does not rule out the idea that CalendarServer couldn't  
do it, the way CalendarServer is structured (from my understanding of  
CalendarServer), it would probably be fairly trivial for  
CalendarServer to handle CardDAV (to which I honestly must say I do  
not know anything about).
