Hi, Simone

There are two ways to do what you want in the CalDAV protocol:

1. Retrieve all the events in the calendar (basically, do a PROPFIND  
to discover the resources of the calendar collection and issue a GET  
for each one), and perform the filtering/recurrence expansion yourself.

2. Issue a calendar-query REPORT to get all events in the data range.

It sounds as if you're thinking of #2: Currently, zanshin doesn't  
offer an API for it; you have to generate the XML request body  
yourself and issue a REPORT. If you need more pointers on how to do  
that, let me know, I think I have some code lying around that does it.
