Bug Description

Apple's iCal Server enables users to share calendars, which is very useful for businesses. It is freely available under the Apache 2.0 license. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/CalendarServer explains how to install it from their subversion repository, but we should have a package for it, and preferably a task in the server install.

Thank you for your suggestion. However, the changes you are requesting aren't really a bug and require more discussion, which should be done on an appropriate mailing list or forum. [WWW] http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community/mailinglists might be a good start for determining which mailing list to use.

Having bug for needs-packaging is the way we track software we want to include in Ubuntu. This bug is perfectly valid.

Debian has packaged this in experimental, but only for python2.4 (and I'm not sure why).

Rebuilding sids packages on both gutsy and hardy works perfectly (i've done it).
filing a backports request would probably work too, now its in ubuntu unstable.

This package appears to exist in a broken form in Karmic, but is not installable because of a version more than 1.5 years old (version 1.2) that is currently bundled depends upon the python-xml package that was dropped after the Jaunty release:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/calendarserver/+bug/403349

There is another bug report requesting an upgrade from the ancient version bundled to the current release, 2.3. That would avoid the dependency upon python-xml:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/calendarserver/+bug/426778

There is a package that exists, so that's an argument for closing out this bug, but because the package is more or less useless, it might be better to keep it open.
