Not being an iCal user I'm sure that's probably correct, although I
can't see why it would be an issue, surely the caldav client just sees
a caldav calendar?  Anyway, seems to work OK with sunbird/iceowl
without issues.

Which is a nasty kludge/hack if you ask me.  Especially if you're
(going to be) using LDAP as a directory.  One of the things I really
like about DCS is that it does/did group calendars, and it's certainly
one of _the_ major reasons why I was asked to test it out, once it
found it's way into Debian at least...

I for one don't need all the attendee/scheduling features for group
calendars, but I'd like to know that when DCS gets updated in the
Debian repositories, and I apt-get upgrade, that all our groups won't
suddenly disappear.
