It sounds to me like Jared is subscribing to a read only calendar
here. It's really the collection that's read only, not individual
events. In this case, you cannot drag and drop events to/from this
calendar (at least this is what we had in the 0.6 calendar spec). You
should get a popup telling you that you don't have permissions to do
I seem to remember that we wanted to be able drag read-only events
onto other calendars but this was difficult for some reason.
FYI, here's the text from the spec...
For a read only calendars the following actions/edits are allowed.
* Selecting an event.
* Changing the color of a calendar.
* Renaming the calendar in the sidebar.
* Removing the calendar/collection from the sidebar.
For a read only calendars, the following actions will popup a dialog
indicating to the user that they do not have permissions to edit
events this calendar.
* Edit any data in the detail view.
* Removing an event.
* Double clicking in the calendar view to create an event in-place.
* Double clicking on an event in the detail view to edit in-place.
* Drag and drop events to/from this calendar.
* Drag events around the calendar view.
* Creating events using the File menu or Ctrl-N.
