Yeah its basically half of phase 3, because Chandler would still have to
sync the individual .ics files (for calendar resources), meaning no
single sync call for the entire calendar collection. Now for
non-calendar collections you wouldn't need to do this, and a single sync
call to retrieve EIM changes is all that is needed. There is no extra
work for Cosmo to complete phase 3, but you couldn't use a single sync
call on calendar collections until phase 2 is done.
What Brian is suggesting is doing all three phases, but concentrating on
calendar resources, and providing minimal support for other EIM record
types. I had thought this was going to be too much work, but that was
before I knew he was going to be able to help out.
