Subject Re: Events calendar

I am not convinced that communication of events (and a calendar is a
communication mechanism) is part of the tasks of the ComDev office. Yes,
the ComDev office can support projects on the howto. But such a mechanism
should be owned by the MarPub office, and they should push.

Best regards,
