Hi All,

I would be also happy to see iCal being cleared up as well, especially 
the basic things like the namespace issue (2002/12/cal/ical# vs 
2002/12/cal/icaltzd#). Currently it is also fairly non-ontological for 
my taste, e.g. using literals for days of week. I understand that as 
usual there is a trade-off between following the original spec vs. 
ontologizing. (Another example: locations as literals versus resources.)

Martin Hepp might be interested to get involved, because he worked on 
opening hours in GoodRelations. Tom Heath and myself also worked on an 
'availability vocabulary', see [1], which could also be used for 

Personally, I don't have much time to get involved... but I'm happy to 
comment on any drafts that might come out.
