Just a clarification....  Fluid is NOT currently working on a  
calendar widget.  I was offering to work with others in the Sakai  
community that want to take this project on :).

As far as Fluid, we've just finished planning for the next several  
iterations which will focus on component design and development but  
not likely this particular one.  Colin has been working on a wiki  
page that describes the upcoming design work.   We'll share once  
Toronto's back from holiday.
