It looks like all the interop results and summary agree that we need
to have basic objects that can be parsed by non-recurrence aware
applications if for no other reason to allow implementations that support
some sub-sets of recurrence rules to parse the data. The new recur-draft
can nail down the exact set that must be implemented in order to be
compliant. . By having the organizer's CUA expand the instances and set
the RECURRENCE-ID value to UTC, it is a format that at least contains
all of the recurrence data.
In addition it looks like VALARM needs to be an add on as there
is a low level of interoperability between vendors.
In some cases it is hard to tell of the vendor did not support a
feature, or if
their support is not working per RFC.
It also looks that iTIP needs to be broken down into perhaps individual
METHODs: PUBLISH, REQUEST/REPLY, delegation support, CANCEL,
So it looks like we need separate drafts for:
- Basic - with VEVENT - that describes how to send 2445 recurrence
Implementations that implement 'Basic' can send 2445
rules, but if they indicate they support iCal-Recurrence,
then they would have
to conform to iCal-Basic and iCal-Recurrence. They can also
send 2445 VTIMEZONE
with those objects.
- VALARM - Do we deprecate PROCEDURE?
- Recurrence and VTIMEZONE
I include VTIMEZONE here as VTIMEZONE is not really needed until
recurrence rules are included.
- METHOD(s): REQUEST/REPLY/CANCEL/REFRESH - including how to schedule.
I think that if you have REQUEST, you have to have REPLY, CANCEL,
Viewing the results and my testing is clear that most do not
support this feature.
So I think it needs to be optional.
- METHOD: ADD - Or should this be part of REQUEST.
- New iMIP.
