Last week Cyrus Daboo, Mike Douglas and I submitted an Internet Draft that specifies an XML format for iCalendar. The draft was developed by the XML technical committee in CalConnect (http://calconnect.org), with input from representatives from Sun, RPI, Apple, Microsoft, and others. (The draft is here: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-daboo-et-al-icalendar-in-xml-00.txt.)
As you probably know, there have been some prior attempts to create an XML iCalendar specification, such as http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hare-xcalendar-03 and http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-royer-calsch-xcal-03. There was a consensus among CalConnect members that there is enough use of one-off XML formatted calendar data to make it worth giving this another try.
My question for you all is whether you're interested in working on an XML iCalendar format specification at this time. There's a vCard XML format draft currently under discussion in the vcarddav group (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-perreault-vcarddav-vcardxml-01) and it would be great to develop an iCal XML format at the same time.
I created a sample iCal to XML converter based on our spec on http://xcal.cloudapp.net. When you have a chance, take a look at the draft and try out the converter, and let us know what you think.
