The fastest way to get support for DAViCal is usually to connect to the DAViCal IRC channel, which is #davical on irc.oftc.net.

Note that members of the DAViCal team are scattered around the world, with several in Europe, and at least one each in the California and New Zealand, so may be sleeping, working, or doing other things when you try to contact us. Please be patient.

There are a bunch of other helpful people in the channel though, and one of them may be closer to your timezone and may also be able to help you out, but make sure you provide enough information for people to do so. A simple 'DAViCal worketh abnormatically' doesn't really help people understand what your problem is: you need to state facts, and be prepared to look in your PHP (web server) error logs to find them!
