Lisa, thank you for responding to this post.
I'd like to add that there is a fair amount of overlap between those
involved in CalConnect and those involved in the calendaring WGs and
activities in the IETF - both in the sense of individuals and of
Calconnect was formed to help move calendaring forward into the
"mainstream of computing". We certainly do generate requirements,
issues, use cases, etc. to assist the standards developers in how the
standards evolve. As Lisa said, we offer interoperability testing
between implementations, and against the standards/specifications. And
we have a goal to promote interoperable calendaring both in the IT
community and to the technology-using world at large.
The membership is made up of vendors large and small, open source
organizations, major academic institutions, etc., and CalConnect
functions as a partnership between all of us to jointly work to further
interoperable calendaring and scheduling.
