    How much would you be willing to pay for it?

    I provide Matrix hosting (as well as XMPP and ActivityPub Mastodon) on Communick [0].

    At the moment I'm more focused on taking these services to offer custom domain hosting, and personally I've been staying away from servers and using DecSync [1] + syncthing to get my calendars and contacts on my devices [2], so I haven't thought about adding a DAV server to the mix on Communick. But if you tell me there is any actual demand, I would definitely consider it.
