[Evolution] Re: Evolution and group calendaring

I have a client who wants me to replace Outlook on his system with
something Linux.  His specific need is to share his calendar with 1 or 2
people who can schedule things for him.  Specifically, he wants the
ability for the people to email him, and items goto his schedule.

Evolution is just now starting to have support for iTip scheduling,
which outlook 2000 can do.  This is an email base scheduling system.
Helix is also working on something to allow shared calendaring which we
hope to have ready for the 1.0 release of Evolution.

Well, just as a side note here I work full-time for helix and although

fact evolution development is done in the open.  I also worked as a
volunteer on the gnome project for more than a year before being paid to
do it.
