I did create a page and added the upcoming events from the wikipage here: (not
published, thus only accessible when logged in.

Could you post a screenshot or something similar?

The main point is:

We should use the calender being the easiest to work with.

In my eyes this contains on the input side:
- adding of events by everybody (even without login)

Not possible - is managed within the CMS (well, would possible to
write a public backend..

- approval of added events to avoid spam/scam etc

...but you'd have to deal with all that.

- categorizing

Possible, but not used yet.

- keep previous events for next year planning

Possible, also reoccurring events.

On the output/visitor side:
- browsing and searching by time, category and name

time already possible, category: only when the categories are added,
name: would require to enable search.
OTOH you could just filter the list to show the events of the next
years and just use within your browser.

- combined view of categories (or multiple categories like "german" and "linux")

That would be a little harder to do, but still possible. But this then
of course also means that the people editing/creating entries make
careful use of those.

- links to relevant web pages from singe entries

That's possible. Dedicated events can have a real page, not just the
announcement snippet.


It looks like all would be possible from the website as far as capability but, as far as I can see, not as possible on the wiki events page. As far as anyone having the ability to add events, I would say that even though this is already available on the wiki, that few events are added. And, when someone does have an event to add they usually ask for help to add this entry on the wiki. I believe we already have quite a number of people who have access permission to the website who could do this as well. Plus, let's not forget that the events calendar will be there in plain view for all visitors to see. This, a good sign as to how active our community is on the conferences circuit.

If we could eventually have categorization, and as Christian mentions, people make good use of this option, we could have a well-tuned calendar where even release dates could be posted as well as any other time-time sensitive material.

Let's not forget, that if there is a way to have some form of categorized reports for marketing planning, this will be an even larger advantaged given to the website based calendar solution.
