Description Matthew Barnes 2009-02-05 12:04:35 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #484232 +++

Evolution's CalDAV support is greatly improved in Fedora 10, and I'd like to backport it for RHEL 5.4.  This would also obsolete the evolution-webcal package.

There are two parts to the CalDAV support:

  1) A backend for evolution-data-server.  This is where most of the meat is.

  2) A plugin for evolution, which provides the UI for configuring a CalDAV
     calendar (in the "New Calendar" dialog).

Among the benefits of doing this would be better support for our own corporate Zimbra calendars on the Corporate Standard Build.

This bug is for the evolution plugin.  It and bug #484232 are co-dependent.

This package does not work well.
It hangs badly when adding an appointment, but when updating any
appointments, or refreshing from the server, it works smoothly.

What server are you connecting to? I have configured three, one is DAViCal local installation, one on Google, one our company Zzzimbra calendar. The last is the slowest, but those two other are pretty quick (less than 2 seconds, approximately).
