    Hello,

    I've been thinking about developing a mechanism to export alloc's Calendar
    through ICS and I would like to discuss some ideas about features regarding
    this.

    As I see it, these are the main points to regard in this feature:

    Calendar should be user based and private (generated hash and resetable)

    Read-only - Since calendars are related to projects/tasks I think it wouldn't
    be possible to edit it from the outside

    Should integrate well with most clients (as far as I know, ICS is well
    interpreted in most clients, including Google Calendar, etc)

    It would be interesting to create custom calendars based on filters (per
    project, per subject), e.g., for an admin to have a view of everyone's
    vacations

    Any other ideas? I haven't looked at alloc's code in a while but I'll try to
    get some time in the near future for this since it would be very useful for my
    projects, and I believe it'll be for many others.

    Regards,

    Sounds great! Don't forget to contribute your code back to the project :-)

    Of course alance! I'll probably have to make some changes to the database but
    I'll submit it as a patch etc etc... will look into it once I come back from
    vacations.
