So you want the calendar generated dynamically?


I would have set up make to build a static html version of the calendar
anytime its vcalendar source file changed.  That way the webserver is light
and fast and static.

You only need dynamicism if the calendar is read-write, no?  I've certainly
set up webcalendar's icalendar support for that (with thunderbird +
lightning- not 100% satisfactory).  But in this instance, you want a
easy-to-maintain icalendar file that others have RO access to (a simple http
url) plus an HTML version of same for the web page.

Or perhaps I am kicking words into your mouth.
