sunbird should register "webcal:" protocol with gnome
When a Gnome program tries to open a webcal URL, e.g., gnome-open webcal://www.dnalounge.com/calendar/dnalounge.ics Gnome should hand that URL off to Sunbird, just as it currently hands http: URLs off to Firefox. Anders Carlsson says: > > The evolution-webcal program registers such a handler and makes it > work with evolution.

Jamie, I think this got fixed with bug 295896. Can you grab a nightly build and confirm?
Use this to easily import calenders from website (example: powerschool by apple publishes calenders on teh site using the webcal://blah.powerschool.com/blah/calender.ics)

(In reply to comment #1) > I think this got fixed with bug 295896. No, we need to actually register as a handler for webcal:// urls, which we're not doing at the moment. For Gnome, I think we could use gconf and simply register using a gconfschemafile. It looks like Fx is doing it in a more hardcore fashion using C++ http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/browser/components/shell/src/nsGNOMEShellService.cpp I'm open to doing it a different way :)
