I spoke to Juan over IRC, and well this could be something nice to do but what we were planning is more than just a calendar module/server. We want to be able to manage budgets or sponsorship requests, we also want to be able to manage attendance, assign tasks, add voting for the bar camp style events and/or BoFs, being able to save tweets/dent from a specific hashtag for an event so the organizers can later read the impressions about that specific event from users. We are also planning on a more generic solution so a lot of people can benefit from this (School or College events, normal meetups, etc)
