>   * Local user group meetings
>   * Conferences with gluster talks
>   * Upcoming releases and feature freezes and other development-driven
>     events
> Required functionality:
>   * It should be possible to subscribe to ical feed for events
>   * There should be a web page listing upcoming events
>   * There should be a way to create events in one place and have
>     them propagate to the social media channels as well
>   * To avoid spam and trolls, we likely need to authenticate

>     something else?
>   * Some events might require registration due to limited number
>     of seats available etc.
> Food for thought:
>   * Red Hat Community calendar: 
>     http://community.redhat.com/events/
>     - events are in a git repository as json
>     - Modifying or adding events requires manual editing of 
>       the json files: https://github.com/OSAS/rh-events/wiki/Adding-and-modifying-events
>     - as far as I know, recurring events need to be implemented
>     - uses the same web infrastructure as www.gluster.org
>     - exports ical
>   * Fedora Calendar
>     - The instance is hosted on fedora infrastructure. If we ask nicely,
>       we might be able to create a gluster calendar there and use it 
>       for our purposes.
>   * Calagator
>     - http://calagator.org/ is the instance they develop this for
>     - code is in https://github.com/calagator/calagator
> Does anyone have other suggestions for either the software, or requirements / ideas?
