Maybe somebody else has a better pattern, but for now, I've implemented a
middleware to fetch ics calendar and store that in folders served by a
Asterisk retrieves ical directly on localhost.
1. Asterisk don't waste CPU time to retrieve data.
2. If the calendar source is down, it's invisible from Asterisk.
However, the main issue is that I didn't find a way to force Asterisk to
purge its cache and reload a specific calendar.
I play with timeouts to avoid to be too much in delay with the latest
version available of ical.
Have a nice day.
