we - sublab.org - are still without a stable calendaring for all
purposes, though not depending on google as well :) .. 

but calendarserver.org is a powerful calendaring solution, on my todo is
to see if that is LDAP capable, so users can have personal calendards as
well. problem so far is a beautified web represantation of certain
calendars, like public events and upcoming meetings and such.

just my 2 cents,
