Hi folks,
This is a little of topic, but I think it is relevant for most folks. I 
have just sent in a draft for a new protocol called CardDAV:


CardDAV does for vCards what CalDAV does for iCalendar. i.e. it provides a 
set of WebDAV extensions and a data model for access to vCard objects 
stored on a server. CardDAV is very similar to CalDAV because of the 
similarities between iCalendar and vCard formats.

There is a separate discussion list setup for CardDAV, so please respond to 
any comments on that list rather than the CalDAV list. List details are
