Right now we use "delete calendar" even when we truly mean "unsubscribe from calendar, but leave my data on the server alone".

We need better UI for this and more thought as to how to do this right.

Spinoff of bug 296202.

talking of the storage calendar right now we're prompting: "Are you sure you want to unsubscribe from calendar <calendar_name>?" although it's getting deleted as Sebo correctly descibed in:

I'd vote for setting this one blocking 0.5 as this may lead to data loss.
Asking for blocking status, per Ulf's comment.
Flags: blocking-calendar0.5?
We're at string freeze without a patch.  Minusing for blocking-calendar0.5

Nice to have, if a patch appears, but definitely not a blocker.

Makes sense for 0.8 w.r.t. bug 376585.
Berend, could you please take care of this one?

This has lived over a couple of versions without many comments or complaints, therefore we shouldn't block 1.0 on it.

Bryan, could you nevertheless take a look at this bug? Maybe with a decent proposal its an easy bug to fix and we can take it for 1.0 after all.

I think its time...

This bug has strings, it needs to be in by Feb 23rd. If you don't have time to review/test the whole patch until then, I'd appreciate if you could at least review the strings and set f+ when you are happy.
