[New: openFATE 312584] Connect calendar on news.o.o to connect upcoming events
Feature added by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)

Feature #312584, revision 1
Title: Connect calendar on news.o.o to connect upcoming events

openSUSE Infrastructure: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)
Partner organization:

Currently the news team manages upcoming events. Not everyone sends in new
events - team meetings are usually there but openSUSE @ a conference almost
never makes it. Connect however has a nice, easy to use 'event' system which IS
used by the ambassadors already. Having these show up in the calendar on
news.o.o would be awesome!

It would also be useful for team meetings, of course, as well as all other
openSUSE related events.

Use Case:
On Augst 6-12 in Berlin the Desktop Summit takes place and a lot of openSUSE
people will be there. Create a event on connect and let everyone click "I will
attend". Now on news.o.o this event shows up in the calendar and anyone can see
who will be there from the openSUSE team!

Business case (Partner benefit): It lowers the efforts required to manage events by the news team.
It also lowers the barrier for people to add events and makes sure more events
show up.

The calendar could also have a nice(r) view somewhere and attendance can show
up on attendees' webpages.
