[geeklog-devel] Extending Calendar

Hey folks..

Been thinking about a problem I have with GL, and I think I've found a 
solution.  My want is recurring events, so here's my take on how to do this.

1) Add a table called events_recurring.
2) Allow additional dates to be added to existing events.
3) Modify the calendar code to search for date ranges in events
    and events_recurring tables.
4) Modify the calendar code to show the 'recurring' date.
5) Create the usual templates/authority/etc for the mod.

Now, this will allow an admin to add *individual* date/time entries to 
an event.  Now, whilst this isn't a true recurring date system, it is 
much more flexible ... it's hard (next to impossible) to get any current 
recurring system out there to make a date appear over a range AND appear 
on a seperate date, and NOT appear on a number of the recurrent dates.

This sort of thing ..
