When publishing or sharing other calendars, it would be good to have an option to include/exclude alarms (screen shot of Apple's iCal attached). There are times where we want to subscribe to other people's calendar to check their schedule, but you don't really want to receive their calendar alarms.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to other person's calendar

Actual Results:  
If it contains alarms, you will receive the alarms even if you don't want to

Expected Results:  
1. When subscribing to other people's calendar, provide a tick box to exclude the alarm. The default behaviour is exclude the alarm.
2. When publishing your calendar, provide a tick box to exclude the alarm. The default behaviour is exclude the alarm.

We'd be happy to contribute programming time to provide this enhanced functionality, if approved.
Notice that the remove alarms are on by default
Notice that the publish alarms are off by default
The issue about subscribed alarms is covered in bug 257428.
