Privacy of a meeting should not impact transparency
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/188.8.131.52 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206pre) Gecko/20080120 Calendar/0.8pre When creating a meeting, if Privacy->Private is chosen, the meeting will be made transparent, if the other 2 privacy are chosen, the meeting is made opaque. I don't think this is appropriate. I understand that this was probably implemented with the idea that someone creating a "private" meeting would not want that meeting to show up in a freebusy lookup, but this only gives a false sense of privacy since other access right systems would come into play if another user was to open the user's agenda itself instead of looking at a freebusy. I think that by default, day events should be transparent and normal events opaque, with all privacy settings, while both properties remaining settable separately. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Sounds reasonable. Time transparency (property TRANSP) is already controlled via the menu "Show Time as -> Busy/Free". Currently setting the privacy to private or public will silently overwrite any previous user decision made for the time transparency -> kind of dataloss. http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=/mozilla/calendar/prototypes/wcap/sun-calendar-event-dialog.js&rev=220.127.116.11&mark=1110-1115#1106
