OK, so there is some duplication of effort. I'm not surprised. :-)
My data comes from my desire to get exhausitive conference data (including
some Act-related info), so I'm sure there is some data you have and I
don't, and vice-versa.

Of course, I understand that from a community point of view, it's better
to advertise a single authoritative calendar. The one I made scratched
my own itch, and I thought I might as well share it.

I'd be interested to learn how to do that (and how YAPC.org does get
the information). I suppose there is some sort of XML export format?
I can't find a way to get to it from the "embed" URL.

I'd also be interested to know how to share information between our two
databases, yes. If a commit bit is needed, I'll take it.

 Be careful when you take one side or the other. You could wind up in the
 middle.                            (Moral from Groo The Wanderer #33 (Epic))
