In addition to internal discussion lists for Technical Committees, etc., CalConnect has implemented several public discussion lists for specific purposes. Each list has a "home page" on the website identified below with information about the purpose of the lists, charter and rules of use, and a link to subscribe, maintain, and unsubscribe.
All CalConnect public discussion lists are moderated, and new subscription requests must be approved to be activated. Only subscribers may post to lists, or receive postings from the list. However, the list archives are publicly available even for closed public lists.
CalConnect has implemented this public discussion list, intended for discussion on calendaring and scheduling developers' issues and questions. The Charter and Rules of Use for this list are given on the list's web page at the link above. We invite all calendar developers and other interested parties to subscribe to this list and make use of it.
The primary audience and expected participants are calendaring and scheduling system developers, and others working on calendaring-related and scheduling-related projects. However, the list is open to any and all participants that agree to and adhere to the rules of use.
The Calendaring and Scheduling Admin Mailing List (firstname.lastname@example.org) exists to foster discussion about all aspects of calendaring and scheduling system administration and management. This includes, but is not limited to, C&S platforms and applications, emerging C&S standards, message flows, access control, unsolicited or bulk agenda invitations (SPCAL), account management, virus vectors, disaster recovery, and interactions with closely related collaborative technologies.
The primary audience and expected participants are calendaring and scheduling system administrators. However, the list is open to any and all participants that agree to and adhere to the rules of use.
Completed CalConnect documents, including CalConnect Standards, are published and made generally available via the Document Register, except for a few internal documents mostly administrative in nature. However, in-progress documents and updates are usually restricted to representatives of CalConnect members.
During the development process, draft CalConnect Standards will be subject to public review and comment. In addition, a Technical Committee may, upon approval, make other draft documenta available for public review and comment to seek as diverse an audience as possible. The Public Review and Comment mailing list is provided for those purposes.
The audience is expected to be those interested in commenting and offering suggestions on a proposed standard or other document; however the list is open to any and all participants that agree to and adhere to the rules of use.
This list is intended for discussion on timezones, especially in calendaring and scheduling. A particular focus is on exchanging issues, challenges, and best practices related to timezone changes.
The intended audience for this list is hence not only technical, but also involves decision makers involved in the political process of changing timezones. However, the list is open to any and all participants that agree to and adhere to the rules of use.
