Horde project leader mentions GroupDAV

Jan Schneider mentions support for WebDAV, CalDAV, and GroupDAV in her blog, here. GroupDAV support in Horde adds thousands, if nor more, compatible servers to the world. Also interesting is the mention of DIMP an AJAX-ified version of IMP. Great news for the Horde and GroupDAV projects.


Shortcuts for crontab

An interesting BLOG post over here. Nothing really dramatic, but some useful and apparently undocumented shortcuts supported in ISC crontab: @reboot, @yearly, @annually, @monthly, @weekly, @dialy, @midnight, and @hourly. It seems odd that I can google these shortcuts and find them in archived manual pages, but the manual pages on my local machines don't mention these shortcuts.


I've uploaded new OpenGroupware RPMs for openSUSE 10.2. These include the recent improvements in calendar permissions mentioned here. The packages can be downloaded from the OpenGroupware.Org docs plone here.


Important Enhancement To ZideStore

Today Helge committed an important enhancement to ZideStore (the OpenGroupware integration service) that changes the behavior for DAV and GroupDAV calendering clients. An appointment created in a team folder is now read/write for that team and also incorporates the default appointment ACL configured in the user's preferences via the WebUI.

The ChangeLog entries are:
  • Logic/LSAccount/ChangeLog
    • LSSetAppointmentCommand.m/LSNewAppointmentCommand.m: now allows arrays of ids/gids/company-eos in the 'writeAccessList' parameter

  • ZideStore/SoObjects/ZSAppointments/ChangeLog
    • SxAppointmentFolder.m: added a method which returns the default write ACL for new appointments created inside the folder. This ACL consists of the group which belongs to the folder (thereby giving all group members write access) and of the ACL which is configured by the user in his preferences.

    • SxDavAptCreate.m, SxAppointment.m: apply ACL returned by the appointment folders -defaultWriteAccessListInContext: on newly created appointments

This is committed as of revision 1945.
