i don't know about any of that. scooby just shows you the calendars in
your cosmo home directory. those calendars had to have been put there
by some client. that client may have originated those calendars or
copied them from some other location, but cosmo and scooby don't know
anything about that.

cosmo and scooby won't know anything about what you've published with
chandler to any other servers.

it doesn't, unless chandler actually makes local copies of those
calendars and then syncs them to cosmo (i have no idea if it does that
or not).

at the moment, chandler is the middle man. cosmo and scooby have no
capability for dealing with calendars that are not in the cosmo home
