It is best to shut down all evolution('killev') before doing it, though.


I wish that wombat would sync to disk (calendar, freebusy, contacts)
every (x) minutes though.  The bug
mentions a evolution-free-busy-publisher addon - any chance to see that

Ok I'm not an evolution developer, but here is a mail I send earlier to
David. He got the code, so you might want to wait if it blows up his
system :-).
One more comment the use of dav is not necessary, one could use timed
ftp uploads.  I'm just lazy and davfs get's it there without "any"
----mail to David ---
I have written a small Evolution daemon to do exactly that.  It listen
to evolution calendar events and publishes free_busy information via dav
to a web server, any time you change the calendar. Ahem Linux only,
don't know if there is a kernel module, see below, for the BSD's, but I
can think at least of a few tricks to get the same result.

1. Compile free_busy, which requires at least a configure run on the
evolution source.
2. Compile your kernel if it doesn't use CODA, or you can use an earlier
version of davfs and compile a kernel module.
3. Apache with dav support.

Never came around to totally integrate it with evolution, i.e. you must
start it manually. But since it uses Wombat, you can start it before
evolution without a problem.
If you want to give it a shot let me know, and which version of
evolution are you running?


I would be interested in participating to such an effort.

How do you export your calendar from Evolution?  I'm running Evolutoin
1.2.0 from Debian's unstable branch, and I've looked all around the
menus trying to find a way to export my calendar in a way suitable for
phpiCalendar.  What's the secret?

I guess you could export your calendar to a png file with php's gd
functions but I imagine it would get quite messy if you have many

If you need any help regarding my solution, don't hesitate.

I am not thinking about sharing, I am thinking about reforming the ics
file to a calendar png.
