Thanks for your response. If the calendar access is read-only, is the
design thought that it would be updated using another piece of software?
This seems odd, given Evo's function.

we will add write support in future versions, probably 2.2 or 2.4.

Oh, bummer. I was so excited about moving to Evolution 2.0, and being
able to manage several calendars on a WebDAV server. The calendar
equivalent of  Here's one vote for adding this feature sooner rather
than later!

While I'm on the subject, I love the ability to have multiple local
calendars. Helps me schedule my work for the week. I can put all my
meetings on one calendar and sync that calendar to my Palm, while
leaving the others only in Evolution. I'm also experimenting with the
Free/Busy support--I've used it heavily in 1.4 when scheduling meetings
with Outlook users, and I look forward to skipping my current manual
posting to an email address to update it.

One feature that seems to be missing is the ability to choose which
calender to put accepted meeting responses on.

it's not missing, it's been even improved :) But it wont let you choose
which calendar to save the meeting to if the meeting already exists in
one of your calendars.

 Every other dialog
related to calendars let you choose a calender--individual events,
synchronization, etc.  But not meeting responses. And I can't find any
place to set the default calendar to use, either. Is there a hidden
setting somewhere I can access?

the default calendar is the one that is highlighted in the calendar
source tree.

And one pie-in-the sky feature request: it would be great to be able to
easily convert a task to a calender event, and vice versa. I know from
the iCalendar format that a single file can contain both tasks and
calendar items.


 In my usage, I'd love to see this underlying
organization more apparent on the surface--I'd love to be able to drag a
scheduled item to the task list to turn it into an unscheduled task,
keeping all the body text and other data intact, and keeping it in the
same .ics file. Then to be able to drag tasks onto the calendar to
schedule them--nirvana!

Combine this with iCalendar publishing to a WebDAV server, and being
able to access this same calendar/task list from Mozilla Calendar--that
would be sweet.

publishing the calendar is being worked on, so probably will be in 2.2
