My understanding is that iCal is always read-only. To get read/write you have to
move to caldav which is a complete other level of complexicity/breakability.
Once question though, does the CentOS infrastructure has an account system?
Currently Fedocal relies on FedOAuth which provides OpenID (and persona) and
combined with the openid-teams extension fedocal is able to manage
FedOAuth  might be something interesting for CentOS, otherwise we can of
courss look at adapting fedocal to the current CentOS infrastructure.
