IMO I think http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/ would be fine, better than 404.
Hmm... homepage says
Download Now
Version 1.5
Is the page maintained?
Better have a working link to somewhere quite accure than to a page that do not exist. That is the situration with Calendar 1.9 (at least with Seamonkey).

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/lightning/

seems to be the official project page, so missing updates to it is an another thing.

Note that I am using finnish version and maybe this is reason why link is broken.
Problem still exists in Lightning 2.6.2.  The add-on directs users to http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/releases/lightning2.6.2.html which retuns a 404.
I've heard that there will be a pull request for the new website this or next week. When its in place I will change the homepage location in the xpi.
The new website is now live at ¹, but the link is still broken in 2.6.4. Just a reminder so this doesn’t get lost.

WFM in SeaMonkey.

Martin, Stefan, I'll take a review from any of you. Does it sound sane to you to use the new landing page?
