Specifications

Requirements

  • Publicly editable
  • Anonymously editable
  • Revert edits
  • Publicly linkable
  • Has the usual variety of calendar layouts (day, week, month, list)
  • Events have a time, duration, description, recurrence, location
  • Exports to iCalendar (RFC 5545)
  • Widget on the wiki homepage
  • Free, as in free speech and free beer
  • Hosted locally

Bonus points

  • Can use wiki logins or some other kind of identification in addition to anonymous
  • Events have a field for which room/area of NB
  • Calendars show which room/area of NB
  • open source or some other moral superiority
  • easy publishing to email (for nb-announce, for instance)
  • misc bells and whistles
  • RSS feed
  • Some kind of reputation system, likely usernames. Edits can be associated with usernames.
  • Tagging/Categorizing of events are useful so as to group similar events. There's a lot going on at NB! IE: "5MoF", "Conlang", "Not Happening on a Regular Basis", "Reoccuring"

Implementation

We are still at the brainstorming phase
