RE: [eclipse-dev] Eclipse calendar

Mylyn has been using Google Calendar for a year and it works well for coordinating calls and events and it has been working well.  I sometimes wonder if it’s weird to be tying in an Eclipse project’s scheduling with a vendor-specific calendar and whether there is a more generic iCalendar-based solution that would work.  But that would require infrastructure.


If using Google Calendar does become more common, I think it would be good to standardize on a naming convention to make things easier for those using multiple calendars.  For example, we now have calendars named “Eclipse Communication Framework” and “Mylyn” and it could be easier to pick out the Eclipse ones if we went with something like “Eclipse - <project short name>”, e.g.:

·         Eclipse - BIRT

·         Eclipse - ECF

·         Eclipse - Mylyn

Given the number of projects in the Eclipse Ecosystem, I would hope for a compromise: One for each major area. Which could then be something like SDK, EMF, BIRT, Mylyn, etc. And one for all conferences with relevant Eclipse content...

This is quite a good idea IMHO.  There are a variety of conf calls and other
meetings that we have around various Eclipse subprojects.  It might be
useful to have one calendar that captures them all.  That way people can see
at a glance what is going on etc.

Would it be better to have one per subproject or just one for all of the
Eclipse project?

Hi Markus,

Seems like a good idea to me.  I created a shared calendar (Eclipse
Communication Framework).

You/everyone should be able to get to it now by clicking here:"">.

I'm putting some links on the wiki now.
