Hi Cyrus, thanks for your attention.

I think you have the gist :-)
I guess that some list members will be familiar with Zope.
describes Plone content management system in a Zope context.
ATEvent objects are typically presented by Plone in this way:
As I expect our Centre to use Apple iCal Server (we're not quite
so I expect that most events will be managed primarily in that context.
Inevitably, our users will _also_ wish for events to presented by Plone.
1) At least: I wish to suppress (in Plone) the presentation of .vcs
and .ics download options -- but that's off-topic from IETF-CalDAV
(probably easily achievable when I find more time to dig into Plone).
2) As an improvement -- and this is where CalDAV expertise will be
*most* appreciated: I'd like Plone to simply present, for an ATEvent
object, event-related information that is drawn from a CalDAV server.
3) Even better: beyond simple presentation, I'd like Plone to have
the ability to update its ATEevent object, based upon what's fed by
the CalDAV server.
4) Best: I'd like changes fed by a human to an ATEvent object to be
relayed appropriately to a CalDAV server, but that's probably over-
ambitious at this time.
Incidentally: are there publicly or privately available any CalDAV
servers with which I might register myself, familiarise myself?
(Whilst I have the code for Darwin Calendar Server, I lack the time
to configure etc.. Mac OS X Server 10.5 is on my shopping list so
I'll take advantage of that when it arrives.)
Initially using Mulberry 4.0.8 as a client.
