For my personal case, the key things are LDAP integration (I actually try to fix your existing plugin, if I got something good I send you a push request) and the integration of existing CalDAV and CardDAV server. OS X Server do not provide a great interface for iCal on web and do not provide any web interface for Address Book, so if this two point can be bind to my existing server that could be really great.

I will do it, I haven’t found the link on the website :-)

>> Nevertheless I’m really interested by your project, it’s good basement even if they have a lot of work to make it usable in production environment, so I’m wondering what is your politic about external contribution when it’s about the general architecture of the project ? Are you interested by a point of view of system administrator or should I fork your project and do what I want on my side ?

OK, good :-)
