 It gets tricky to keep oneself informed about team meetings listed in

 While having this page makes things smoother, it is still not widely
 consumable and doesn't support any notifications or highlights
 changes/deviations. So any deviation/change in meetings can not be
 communicated to users unless they manually check the change or read post,
 if any, in Make blog.

 An ideal solution would be to have a shared calendar feed so one can
 easily integrate it with their choice of calendar solution.

 I propose to use widely supported iCal format to create such feed.

 But this needs considerations on below issues:
 1. How many previous and future meetings should be included in feed?
 2. Should it follow current meeting page? Then is it wise to remove all
 the events other than those published?
 3. Should recurring meetings be marked as recurring? If yes, then how to
 tackle future updates or one-off changes?
 4. Have static .ics file generated post each edit and served from uploads
 folder? or have a dynamic URI/end-point and let caching mechanism handle
 generated feed?
