Calendar would be me. There is a new commit as of yesterday with a first
cut of an iCalendar implementation based on an earlier code base which
was distributed with Jetspeed but not completed.

No work has yet been done to see what type of integration could be done
with Workflow, Avalon, James, Turbine, or Velocity. If you would like to
volunteer it would be very appreciated. Soon probably within a week I
will be posting an "official" to do list along with a tentative release

The first order of business will probably be to get Periodicity working
with Torque generated peers. From there we will probably concentrate on
user access issues and integrating users, groups, and permissions.
