Any volunteers?
Authored by: theMaker on Sep 15, '02 11:08:35PM
I have already started work on this. Posted a couple of messages here to see if anyone wanted to assist. I have been studying the specifications of the iCalendar format and have found some excellent documentation on the tagset used as well as how to distibute and manage the data. I supplied links to this documentation in PDF format that I have posted on my server. Here is the post with the links: http://www.macosxhints.com/comment.php?mode=display&title=iCal+to+website+publishing+%3F+We+need+an+XML+parser&type=article&order=&pid=11589 I did not know about the perl module and will be looking into it. I have applied for a sourceforge account to handle the project and am working on some initial documentation to get the project going. Again anyone interested in assisting, please email me conrad@schilbemedia.com

Rather than divide effort, it would be good to chip in with the existing (if slightly dormant) Net::ICal / Reefknot stuff.

Also, note that ical-the-format is *not* XML based, and I'm not sure that there is anything to be gained by coming up with some kind of XML wrapper for it. The format is relatively simple as is, and it seems to me that it can only get more complex by wrapping it in more markup. There are more interesting problems to be solved here :-)

Anyway, you seem to be the same person that just wrote to the Reefknot development list. That seems to me to be the right place for such conversation, so I'd like to take any followon conversation over there...
