[CalendarServer-users] Is it possible to set up a group calendar in DCS that contains calendars from Basecamp?

Hi Terry,

I didn't find a DCS related solution to this problem and since I don't 
have an infinite amount of time to devote to this particular problem, my 
proposed solution was:

* Write up a ruby script to grab all of the project IDs via Basecamp's 
API and put them into an applescript-formated array
* Write up an applescript script to automate subscription to the 
Basecamp milestone calendars

Then we manually create iCal group(s) for the Basecamp subscriptions so 
that we can turn all the projects on and off with one click. This cuts 
down iCal subscription time from 15-30min (manually subscribing to 30 
projects) to ~2min.

As for group-related stuff, the most complicated that we've gotten is 
setting up 2 calendar groups with 4-6 calendars and 4 members each. So 
our set up probably won't be that helpful to other people. Let me know 
if you're interested in seeing our simple little scripts and I'll post them.
