[Chandler-dev] Bug fixes to consider putting in 1.0

With Grant returning tomorrow, I wanted to start a conversation about
whether we should spin a 1.0rc2, and what bug fixes should go in.
Sheila mentioned that she'd like Grant to make the decision about what's
safe to go in and what's not, which sounds good to me.
I do think we probably should spin an rc2, although I know we'd really
like to ship 1.0. Here are my nominations for fixes to put in:
Outlook fix - https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12262
Emails from Chandler with empty bodies are, in some variety of Microsoft
mail clients, displaying our theoretically hidden EIM payload. This
isn't a big deal but it's ugly, and the fix is a very safe addition of a
bit of whitespace.
URL fix - https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12256
The recent URL detection code didn't work with URLs that stretched over
multiple lines. My fix to find multi-line-URLs unfortunately has a
flaw: if a URL appears on the first line, all whitespace after the item
body is seen as matching that first line, which makes for a
disconcertingly large click target for that url (and makes it hard to
edit the body if it happens to contain just a url and nothing else).
This is also only a minor annoyance, but a very safe fix.
Google CalDAV - https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12278
Google's first public stab at CalDAV support has a lot of
idiosyncrasies. Fortunately none of them are terribly onerous.
This isn't the safest change, but it mostly affects CalDAV code, which
clearly hasn't gotten heavy use lately or someone would've pointed out
it's been broken for recurrence for the last year!
I personally think we should do our damnedest to be the first shipping
CalDAV client that actually works with Google CalDAV. Seems like
there's a lot of buzz now, it sure would be nice to ride it, alongside
our 1.0 release. But it would also be reasonable to delay the patch for
a 1.0.1 or something like that.
