Thanks! (… also for updating the status on Teams/WikiCaretakers)

Regarding the EventCalendar:
I'm not sure if I can share your (basically) positive assessment of the 
plugin. You already mentioned the ical export as a missing feature, but that's 
only the tip of the iceberg:

- the EventCalendar needs explicit cache cleaning
- many people seem to find the syntax hard to use
- missing timezone support
- inability to import external event sources
- missing ical feed (just mentioning this again - probably already part of 
your point "ical export + rss feed")
- no automatic sync to eal's event form

Disclaimer: I'm not sure every single point of these even needs fixing, but 
these are the complaints that I remember hearing.

All in all I think this warrants a reevaluation whether another (standalone?) 
calendar/event page would be a better fit, or if the EventCalendar plugin is 
still the best solution all-in-all.

Let's file this under "Plan B" ;-)
