For these three ideas, I'm not quite sure what you have in mind. Could
you elaborate a bit more ?

hm I'm not sure what you mean here. Do note that after login the
timezone changes.
After, it's not because you're not in a group that you do not want to
know when that group is meeting, or am I reading your suggestion

It would mean including national holidays for each and every
nationalities we have in the project, I'm not sure I'm fan of it.

For the week-ends, it should be duable to give them another color
although for most of the community, week-end are actually the working
days ;-)

Having a CLI or desktop application to interact with fedocal is a nice
idea, but let's keep it for later :)
At the moment:
- add/edit/delete -> website only
- read -> website + any client that uses either the API or the iCal

The question is for this, do we want it in fedocal or in a stand-alone
application ?

Thanks for all the suggestions :)
