Online calendar software

How do get this to work?

First of all it asks for a URL 'publishing location' but it's not
clear exactly what this is. A path to a folder? A path to the exact
file? Do I give the ftp:// or shh:// URL or just the http:// one?

Second, once you've setup this preference, how do you actually make it
publish? There is a 'Publish free/busy info' button but that's not
what I want, I want to publish the entire calendar.

Is there a way to get it to publish automatically so the online
calendar is always in sync?

I tried adding a new calendar, making it an 'on the web' calendar and
specifiying the location of my ical file on the web, but this just
resulted in Evolution crashing a lot.

I noticed that Mozilla Sunbird doesn't seem to be available in Ubuntu,
and if I try to install mozilla-calendar it tries to install
mozilla-browser as a dependency and then complains that the wrong
version of mozilla-browser is installed.
