That is another 3rd party plugin ...

I downloaded "exchangecalendar-3.1.3.xpi" and extracted it and I do not
see anything inside there that is glibc specific (no binaries that are
dynamically linked) so, I see no reason it would not work with the EPEL
lightning from testing.  That said, I can not test it as I don't have
that environment.
