The source is a large crock of shit, because you need a big part of the
mozilla source to compile it.. and basically we already have 2 copies of
overlapping mozilla source in the archive. It might be a better idea to
talk to Eric Dorland (dorland@lords.com) about cooperating with him on
the calendar, since IIRC it uses mozilla/toolkit, the stuff used to
produce Mozilla Firebird.

I digress; I suggest you take a smaller package (hey! adopt a few
orphaned or RFA'd packages.. *hint wmweather+ hint*) first so you can
learn the ropes of bug tracking and package building completely. Then
perhaps you can try a more enterprising venture, mozilla-calendarward.
