Is this calendar only editable by the Media Team, or is there a way 
normal LA members (or those running LUGs) can add to it?

I have a calendar set to public in my calendar app (ownCloud) that is 
populated with TasLUG events. I could help populate the LA Events 
calendar as you suggest.

I also keep a calendar that I populate with FOSS/Linux/related 
conferences and events worldwide (eg Linux Foundation events, and things 
like PyConUS, RailsConf etc) - since many of these may now have live 
streaming of some/all talks, I can keep an eye on upcoming talks not 
just in AU/NZ...

I think an ICS / CalDAV feed of events would be more useful than RSS as 
it ready to import into people's own favourite calendaring app. Perhaps 
both CalDAV/ICS and RSS could be accomodated.
