Looks like we have the same thoughts for our infra. "Create event"
could mean a very serious solution for our event handling, why
couldn't be in Evolution too? Moreover I see apps from our side that
can blow lots of minds. Eg. we have already amazing apps.
We have an wonderful app called FedoCal. We have FedMsg. We have
Evolution. So...what? Well, FedoCal can be our portal, openness,
filtering report about events. FedMesg can be our handler - that
through FAS can send even to a person in evolution mail format
reminders, that appears in notification, and from that place I can
select/mark as task, that gonna be inserted to my evolution. In
return, when I select in evolution that task is done, it appears as a
message and a notification if necessary in FedoCal, or sends a message
that task/milestone done to the project leader....
If FedMesg would be able to use up .iCal or .ics (witch is possibly
are already there), and mail format - that can mean also easier trac
tiketts fill up (requests, handling, feedback), or wikipedia event
All in all - we are very near to revolutionize our project, and
communication within subprojects, community in all and within leaders.
How magnificent would be to have a dedicated community messaging
service that binds together mailinglists, task management, events....
What do you think?

Yeah. Eventually, I'd expect even the various simple standalone apps to
integrate with each other in some way - for example "Create event" in
Geary to create an entry in the new California calendar app - it's
really useful. I understand that the different applications will benefit
average users that may only use a subset of the features that evolution

Same here. I just tested Geary out, and I went straight back to Evo. I
was just worried because I've been regularly filing bugs against Evo and
was looking forward to the new fixes - the talk of replacing it caught
me a little by surprise. :)
Thanks all for the clarifications,
