Just catching up on this thread. FYI, my assumption has been...
Phase 1 would have Chandler continue to publish .ics files to a
calendar collection on Cosmo, with a ".chandler" subcollection
containing .xml resources. The only difference from today would be
that the .xml files would contain EIM records instead of the current
XML Chandler uses.
Phase 2 would take place when Cosmo started understanding those EIM
records, and Chandler could stop publishing the .ics files. (No more
Phase 3 would do away with DAV and use a single HTTP operation to GET
or POST a bunch of changes to a collection all at once. (ACID
I'm definitely willing to combine any of these steps as needed; it
seems like Randy is suggesting combining phases 1 and 3, followed up
by phase 2. Brian is suggesting combining *all* of them into one
phase I think. I need to think about this some more before I make my
vote, but I just wanted to let you know I am reading this. :-)
