6 I setup a very simple thing for this by making a cvs-group-writable

9 with KDE, at least, you need to enter a password to open it for read-write a
10 few times before it finally works). I was unable to find a protocol designed
11 for a shared (writing) calendar in my searching, but perhaps someone else
12 knows of one?

15 Possibly included in this idea might be a way to get things like 'peregrine',
16 '*.g.o', and perhaps other aliases to resolve on dev (users too?) systems.
17 Otherwise, maybe this should be added as another idea...

26 I don't know what this could be used for, but I'm sure if one existed someone
27 would find a use for it. :)

30 That would be nice, especially if we get a BT tracker.

35 * BitTorrent tracker :)

44 Unfortunately, I don't have much time these days. To look into extensive
45 details for much of any of these (except BT tracker, perhaps) would probably
46 at least cut my dev time in half, let alone writing up a document for them.
47 If someone else has time to make a GLEP for the stuff, please do. Otherwise,
48 I'll probably write one in a few weeks/months when I get more time (winter
49 break?).
