I got AgenDAV working without too much hassle:


Once I worked out the url for the calendar that AgentDAV had created I 
was able to see it in Thunderbird/Lightning, add events, etc. So that 
works nicely.

* DAViCal back-end: http://www.davical.org
* AgenDAV front-end: http://agendav.org
* Thunderbird with Lightning on my laptop.
* Firefox browser on my Android phone to view the AgenDAV front-end.

I'm doing an experiment to see how I can manage without the "cloud" 
services that everyone uses these days (gmail, dropbox, etc).

So far I have:

* Self-hosted email on my Linode. Thunderbird on my laptop, K-9 Mail on 
my phone. I followed this great guide: http://workaround.org/ispmail/squeeze

* File storage on my Linode, synchronisation using Unison. I've been 
using Unison for quite a few years.

* DAViCal calendar for Thunderbird/Lightning, Android phone.

* cyanogenmod on my Galaxy S3. Still need a gmail address to download 
things from the Play Store, so I've made a separate account for that.

* Amazon S3 for archiving some important files, complementing my USB 
hard drives.


* git-annex/assistant for synchronising files.

* CardDAV (?) for synchronising contact info (email, phone number).
