[CalendarServer-users] Setup for small group/family

Fell calserver users,

I'm finally getting back to something that's been on my to-do list for  
awhile--setting up the cal server for my family to use.  I know that  
there are at least a few others out there who do something similar, so  
I'm looking for feedback on how you've set it up.

I'm trying to decide if I want to have an account--and, thus,  
potentially multiple calendars--per person, or if I want to have just  
one account with multiple calendars under that account.  The advantage  
of the latter layout is that it most accurately mirrors what we have  
right now.  Access control isn't a big issue, because right now it's  
only my wife and I managing calendars related to ourselves and other  
members of the family.

The advantage of the former layout, though, is that it scales better  
for the future (when kids manage their own calendars) and allows more  
segregation of activities into different calendars.  It also would  
allow for kids to be able to manage their own calendars, but not  
change those of the parents.

I can manage the technical details pretty well on my own (so far), but  
am looking for feedback on the administrative side of things.  Any and  
all help appreciated.
