This document proposes a maintenance notification convention that requires the use an iCalendar file augmented with standarzied and machine parseable metadata. The metadata is constructed by using the x-name property in the iCalendar file in compliance with [RFC 5545] [RFC5545]. This specification substantially reduces automation efforts, and still provides easy calendaring for manual processing.
