[PATCH] evolution can't load caldav calendars with a space in their name
Last modified: 2014-01-02 05:50:51 EST
Description of problem:
evolution is unable to access caldav calenars that have a space in their name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
Events in the calendar are never displayed.
Calendar works normally
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.
Thanks for a bug report. This  is an upstream bug about similar issue with a fix  which helps here, for the eds side. There is also mentioned one commit in evolution, but I would skip it, it's too intrusive.
I tested the commit on its own and it works as expected, calendar can be opened with it.
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.
All required changes are part of 2.32.3 of eds and evo, thus I make this depend on the rebase bugs.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
