Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Evolution, select New->Calendar
2. Select Type CalDAV
3. Give it any name
4. Specify a URL with a space in the name
5. Specify a Username
6. Hit OK
7. Try to display the calendar
8. Try to add an event to the calendar
Actual results:
Events in the calendar are never displayed.

Expected results:
Calendar works normally
Comment 2 Marc Milgram 2011-03-31 15:29:18 EDT
This works correctly in RHEL5, but is broken in RHEL6.
It appears to translate the space into %2520.  It should be translated to %20.

Web calendars work correctly in RHEL 6, but don't allow for updating the calendar.
Comment 4 Milan Crha 2011-04-01 02:03:06 EDT
Thanks for a bug report. This [1] is an upstream bug about similar issue with a fix [2] which helps here, for the eds side. There is also mentioned one commit in evolution, but I would skip it, it's too intrusive.

Comment 5 Milan Crha 2011-04-01 02:15:10 EDT
I tested the commit on its own and it works as expected, calendar can be opened with it.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-04-03 22:09:21 EDT
Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 7 Milan Crha 2013-05-09 08:52:32 EDT
All required changes are part of 2.32.3 of eds and evo, thus I make this depend on the rebase bugs.
Comment 16 errata-xmlrpc 2013-11-20 23:59:38 EST
