Hi all,

An iCalendar with all OSM related events can help people with always 
knowing when OSM events are, inside their own calendar (e.g. iCal, 
Google Calendar, etc).

If everybody that organises something OSM related could add the event to 
upcoming.org, and tag them as 'openstreetmap', then all events should 
show up in this iCalendar:

Another plus of adding the events in upcoming.org is that an extra 
(local) audience is reached.

I have just added the upcoming Dutch mapping parties, and I see that 
somebody (non-OSM!) has already added The State Of The Map with the 
'openstreetmap' tag :)

This approach obviously raises the question of what to do with 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Current_events. Should events be 
registered in both wiki and upcoming? Or can the wiki somehow parse the 

What do you think?

Best, Zoran
