Thanks for the info. The reason I am asking is I am developing a
"cloud database" and I would like to be able to support different
client tools. I dont want to do anything where the data is "dumb" like
webdav, but caldav or something higher in the food chain would be
cool. I like caldav because it seems to have a fair amount of support.
If morse code is fairly easy to do I might consider that, but given
where things are at right now I am thinking a safer first step would
I was intrigued by carddav because it feels like there is no good
standard for contact information on a server. I know there is LDAP,
which I dont know much about but it seems not really mainstream for
regular users. It does seem weird that nothing else exists.
Just trying to figure out if there is a way to support chandler
without too much work basically.
