My buddy Tom Hoffman is working on this project for Mark Shuttleworth
(yes, the Ububtu guy.) It's to be a school admin tool written in Python
using the Zope 3 component architecture and the Twisted framework.

Part of schooltool is almost ready for people to start using today. It's
the SchoolBell calendar server:


This is "a version of SchoolTool that is simplified and modified for
handling calendaring for organizations that are not schools."

SchoolBell allows users to manage their personal calendars, group
calendars and calendars for resources, e.g., rooms, projectors, etc, via
a web interface, or using an iCalendar compliant client such as Mozilla
calendar or iCal.

For Debian /unstable (and, presumably, Ubuntu):

# apt-get install schoolbell
