BTW, my XML-RPC/SOAP implementation will take into account vCard and the
iCalendar standards. I personally don't think a whole lot of iTIP since
I have yet to see a single iTIP daemon. Also as a stand alone daemon it
seems far too limited. You would end up talking to IMAP for email, iTIP
for calendar/todo, maybe some kind of vCard daemon for contacts... I
think it MUCH easier for everyone if the XML-RPC/SOAP services deal with
the data and leave the client side to giving the user a rich and useful

But you are probably biased for doing it with SOAP 8-)

Just tossing another 2 cents in here---

There's a project in the Perl community that's working now on creating
an open iCalendar./iTIP shared calendar server. It's called Reefknot
(, and we're currently in the planning
stages--- our current project is to revise the Net::ICal module to the
point where it's feature-complete and usable by average Perl coders.
We'd love to have contact with other project teams to learn what you're
doing and how you're solving problems related to shared calendaring.
And, of course, new developers are always welcome. Please email me if
there are any questions I can answer about our goals.
