That's me.  I've now added you and Vid as people who can edit and
grant permissions on the calendar (anyone can subscribe to it).  I
hadn't done this earlier because I sort of gave up on it -- it's not
clear to me that it handles time zones correctly.  The calendar's
time zone is GMT, but Google calendar doesn't seem to adjust meeting
times for subscribers in other time zones.  E.g., the upcoming
meeting at 4 p.m. UTC/GMT appears on my Eastern Time zone (U.S.)
calendar as happening at 4 p.m. Eastern Time, which isn't very
helpful.  Can any of you reconcile this time zone issue?  It may be
that I just don't understand the Google calendar interface very
well, but if this is an unresolvable problem, we probably want to
remove the calendar link from the UbuntuWomen wiki.
