The issue with calendaring seems to be less finding single-user
calendar software (there's scads for GNU/Linux), but finding a way to
distribute calendar information among users -- department and project
orientations being most useful.

This is where I see peer-level sharing as the real issue.  It's not a
question of finding some place to write your own appointments (hell, I
use 'calendar', to email myself reminders), but to share this data with
other users.  None of the many pages I've read on this topic gives
details on how peer-based calendaring can be shared effectively in an
organization.

This might be a good topic for a writeup from anyone who's done
something similar.

Peace.
