Can this be avoided if we maintain different calendars on fedocal
itself? Instead of a single "Events" calendar, we could have separate
calendars for:

Release parties

Or we could request upstream to include a fixed set of "tags", if we
want to keep the one calendar?

(We already do categorize our events in this manner)

A subset of all the calendars on fedocal can then be exported and picked
up by fedora-magazine. 

I already see some events on fedocal, but it wouldn't be too much work
to request FAmSCo to make this a mandatory step for all events. (I can
go ahead and file a ticket myself.)

Basically, I think it'll make more sense to keep fedocal the main
calendar for everything in the project, since it's FAS accessible and
then export required information to various places, including

Would it also be possible to put a link to fedocal in the calendar page.
Something like:
"There's a lot going on in Fedora all the time! The complete community
calendar can be seen here: https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar"

If I'm not mistaken, only people who have write access to
fedora-magazine can do this. I think adding events to fedocal and
exporting them would be less work for you folks, since you won't have to
keep a look out for new events and then manually update it, and simpler
for the community.
