Technical Summary

   This specification updates [RFC5545]  and [RFC5546] by introducing a
   number of new iCalendar properties and components which are of
   particular use for event publishers and in social networking.

   This specification also defines a new STRUCTURED-DATA property for
   iCalendar [RFC5545] to allow for data that is directly pertinent to
   an event or task to be included with the calendar data.

Working Group Summary

   The document did not raised any controversy, but in my opinion
   the document would need some more feed backs from the community.
   At this point we mostly rely on the experience of the author as well as
   his own implementation.  

Document Quality

   Michael has a partial implementation.


   Daniel Migault is the document shepherd and Barry Leiba is the responsible AD.
