I've checked out Darwin Calendar Server, but they are not going to solve an issue (as of 2006) that means evolution can't use it, and evolution won't budge either- so a mexican stand-off and I'm caught in the middle (probably with others).

It looks almost perfect, but once again I have been stumbled. I need to setup tomcat to get it working, and tomcat is now installed, but the apache connector is the tough point again- I'm trying to install mod_webapp as per instructions here (, but the port breaks with missing includes.

It appears FreeBSD just doesn't want to be a calendar server! I am chasing either the developer or another poor soul trying to get the mod_dav_acl (which is required by mod_caldav) to work on anything other than linux. Once this hurdle is worked out then the caldav module might work very well.

As for bedework I'll keep on that track- I have to get somewhere eventually! One way or the other....

At the end I'll post the result, and maybe I'll work on a port or something.
