Calendar Subscriptions

Calendar subscriptions allow your calendar to subscribe to other calendars.  This will make the events (and categories) from the calendar you are subscribing to show up in your calendar.  You may subscribe to calendars that you do not have access to, but subscribing does not give you access to modify those events.  Your calendar may have any number of subscriptions to other calendars.
