That's technically not true.  California uses the system timezone whenever 
it creates events and the event's timezone when editing them.

I have noticed that Google Calendar will quite often convert a new event to
UTC.  So far I've not found a rhyme or a reason for the conversion, it doesn't
happen every time.  It's possible other calendar servers will have a similar

However, when I say it converts to UTC, I mean the system time is preserved,
but the event is stored in UTC.  Ultimately, this should be invisible to you.
Is that not the case?

My timezone is CET.
Every event fetched from server is 1 hour back (i.e. 1400 instead of 1500).
The same about event created from california.

- I have many CalDAV calendars and I made mistake (typo) in one URL. The 
  result was some zombie-caledar that prompts for password every time I 
  start calendar. I couldn't see it anywhere, I had to use evolution to 
  clean it up,

There's a calendar manager in California.  It's in the Application Menu
("Calendars").  There's also a Calendars button on the right side of the
toolbar.  From there you can remove a calendar.

Yes, I can only if the calendar is created properly.
If I make some mistake (i.e. URL) and calendar will not connect to CalDAV 
server I don't see that calendar in california menu.
On every california start there is prompt for password.

- california does not honour color of the calendar from CalDAV,
Do you mean the calendar's color is stored on the server?


What server/service are you using?

Right now it's Baikal and owncloud.
But it works on most CalDAV servers.

- every each calendar I have to configure manually. Under OSX it's 
  possible to put one link and you have there all the calendars you use.
We have a ticket for that:


Calendar creation is also possible.
I assume you mean create a new calendar on a CalDAV server.  I've added that 


- icon in tray and/or some applet?

Tray icons / applets are frowned upon by GNOME at the moment.  I will say 
that because California uses EDS, events it manages are available in the 
GNOME Shell calendar and Unity calendar applet.

when working under non-gnome it's problem...

- TODO lists support.

That's a possibility, but at the moment we're focused on calendar support.

ok, that only additional functionality.
