[chandler-users] Using Claws as CalDAV for Chandler

Hello

I was trying to access my calendar with claws and as it didn't work, so
I asked for help on their mailing-list. Apparently the caldav server
isn't conforming to the RFC, is it a known issue and will there be a
fix?

Regards,
Reto

I have tried. It appears that Chandler/Cosmo still does not fully
comply to the caldav RFC. The RFC specifies that given no request
options the caldav server MUST reply by the entire set of events
according to the iCal RFC. Eg.

What Chandler/Cosmo sends instead is the resource specification wrap
inside an HTML page. Study the source for Mozilla Sunbird and you will
find a quirks section for Chandler/Cosmo.

The best, and most complying, implementations are Apple iCalendar
Server and DAViCal.
