So I made some tests with the calendar, and it full supports iCal as an 
import option. The only problem now is that the Fedora Calendar doesn't 
have all the list of Events (Comparing with the events posted on wiki). 
So either way we have to post the events on our own, either on the 
magazine's calendar or in the fedora calendar.. And another problem when 
importing is that on the Fedora Calendar all the events are in one 
category (instead from the magazine which we categorize them to FUDcons, 
FAD, Release Parties etc..) So when importing we have to categorize them 
again. (except the meetings, which can sort them all under one category)
And I would highly recommend to write the events directly to the 
magazine.. (Besides the events are few and I don't think that it would 
be a problem posting them to the calendar every day or two ;)..)
