I've just set up owncloud[1] on debian, reasonably straightforward setup
for a sysadmin! It does calendar, contacts and file storage services.

For android, I use CalDAV-Sync beta, by Marten Gajda[2], which 2 way
syncs the calendar with your phone.  He also has CardDAV-Sync[3] which
does the same thing, but for contacts.

This is all part of my 'weaning myself off google' project. Now I just
have to make it seamless for the rest of the family and we'll be set ;)

Just tested it with thunderbird, and adding a calendar works fine,,
following the instructions on the owncloud forums[4]

Hope that helps
