Debian is using the iCalendar format in various ways.
- Some of the iCalendar data is for the whole Debian community, such as data about major events.
- Other data sources (such as tasks for outstanding RC bugs) are mainly useful for developers and package maintainers.
iCalendar is a generic format for representing events and tasks. It is defined in RFC 5545.
- There was a Mac OS application called iCal, but the iCalendar standard is not an Apple proprietary standard and it is widely supported.
