Or did you write it from scratch?

What calendar are you referring to?
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

It's written in java, from scratch. You can help if you like:

Are these projects open source in the sense that I could use them for a project outside the church's site?

It's not really open source. A better term would be "community developed projects."
Many questions are already answered on the LDSTech wiki. Check it out!

Just curious, but why not open source them? Is it too much overhead? Could someone fork what's already done? (this is meant to be a compliment of what's already been done, not a criticism =)
