Hi Mickey - one of the projects on our list is to solve this problem, and
allow calendar exchange between Exchange systems at COMIS and BSAD, and
the central calendaring system.
Unfortunately, this isn't likely to happen with the current Oracle
calendar product. So, we are going to be looking into new collaboration
systems for UVM - new email, calendaring, IM, etc... that will support
calendar integration.. This might be Exchange, or Zimbra, or some other
commercial product. Or it might be Google or MS Live or some "cloudy"
But one of the most key requirements is that we'll be able to have
calendar data exchange between the central system and other calendar
systems around campus.
I'll make sure to send you an invite when we're ready to start discussions
about that again (most likely early fall).
