That's correct, the list of events is driven by The Perl Review events
calendar. Those events don't have a way to include an event link, so the
only way to get the event link is include it in the event description.
We could try to parse the event description to get the link, or suggest
some standards for the description text to make it easier, but I think
this would be error prone. My main goal was to make this as automatic as
possible (I know, I'm lazy).
As far as how it should work, I'm all ears if someone wants to suggest
something (and offer the time to implement the suggestion).

Indeed we would, at least for a while.
