Bonus links for people interested in the Radicale CalDAV/CardDAV daemon:

   Run-through of configuring setup (from tarballs) and client access.

   Setup of Radicale 0.7.1 and 0.9 under Linux (Debian Wheezy) and usage
under Linux, Mac OS X and iPad in brief.  (He chose to install from 
tarballs because the packages in Debian Wheezy were then, mid-2016, 
too old for his liking.)

   Very quick and simple setup of Radicale from .deb on Debian behind
   nginx.  Uses iPhone as an example client setup.

   As usual for the ArchLinux wiki, useful details.

  Another nginx setup.  He compiles pieces needed.  Client setup 
  described for iPhone and for a CardDAV CLI client called pyCardDAV.

  Apache HTTPd as reverse proxy for Radicale.  Distro-neutral.  Covers
  a bunch of client software on sundry platforms.

  Interesting perspetive.  User has ruled out Radicale and some
  other promising options because calendar invitations to be supported
  and able to go to both internal and external addresses.  (Knowing
  what your requirements are is indeed crucial.)

  More valuable perspective.  User liked Radicale's very lightweight
  nature, but found that appointments sometimes were missing in his
  calendar client, and found that a Radicale admirer had already
  chased this problem down to access limitations in the single-file
  *.ics calendar datastore, and is attempting to address this in a 
  Radicale fork named Calpyso, written by Keith Packard of X11 fame,
  https://keithp.com/blogs/calypso/, https://keithp.com/calypso/ ,
  storing one event per vcalendar/vcard file instead.

  Note:  The Radicale Web pages states that the daemon does support
  exactly that sort of non-default back-end called 'multifilesystem',
  which uses per-contact files rather than single files.

  Another simple setup runthrough, on Ubuntu from a standard .deb.
  Explains client setup for Evolution and Thunderbird.

  Runthrough for RHEL/Fedora starting with a source RPM.
  Example client setup with Evolution.

  Video runthrough on something called OpenMediaVault, a 
  Debian-based NAS.

  Very simple Debian docs / runthrough, using Apache HTTPd.

  Simple setup on CentOS 7.

  As URL suggests, user fled from Baïkal, and describes conversion to

  Example setup on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian.  (See, I wasn't
