A feature to act on (i.e. at least enable/disable) groups of calendars would be very helpful. In our example we have about 200 calendars (of a single person each), where each of them might belong to a number of groups.
the idea is to be able to quickly get an idea of calendar entries for all of the
 respective group's members (one group is (un)selected -> all members' calendars become (un)selected).
this is a different usecase than a group-calendar, as users generally won't enter each of their entries into both their personal and all group-calendars of the groups they belong to, and also as the information of which entry belongs to which specific user is meant to be preserved.

i actually tried to start implementing such a thing but kindof gave up after spending an excessive amount of time to (unsuccessfully) try to find out what kind of object "listTree" is, and whether that might be a better approach to adding groups to the calendar list/tree than by defining/implementing a new calendar type to add it to the composite calendar...
there's no such thing as a class reference, is there? :)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right-click on the "Calendar" pane
2. select "New Group" and add the calendars which should be in this group
3. see? ;)
Actual Results:  
people crying: "omg, the 'new group' menu-entry is missing!?"

Expected Results:  
a new entry in the "Calendar" pane that can be checked so that all "member-calendars" become checked, or unchecked so that all "member-calendars" become unchecked.

being able to query a group's members by ldap (i.e. instead of creating a local list by selecting from all available calendars, an option to configure ldap-server, basedn, filter, and attribute-name holding the calendar-name) would round it up close to perfection, i guess... :)
Looks like a duplicate of Bug 255180.
