Description Mauricio Teixeira 2008-05-08 17:38:36 EDT
On Evolution 2.12.3, reading calendar from Zimbra 5.0 server using webcal://
(calendar type "On The Web"), all calendars open in read-only mode, rendering it
impossible to make any changes.

Using caldav:// (calendar type CalDAV) everything works fine.
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2008-05-08 20:24:46 EDT
They're two different protocols.  "On The Web" calendars use the WebDAV protocol
and are read-only.  CalDAV is a newer protocol that builds on WebDAV that allows
you to edit web calendars, if the calendar server supports it.

The evolution-caldav package provides Evolution's CalDAV implementation.
