Doesn't work by clicking the new tiny lock icon either.

Please consider that we removed this feature intentionally:

OK, sounds reasonable and is approved by Christian.

Is this a final solution (i.e. this bug is WONTFIX) or a temporary solution that was just chosen to get the other bug fixed before 0.9 release? If not I'd request to add back the feature.

I think it would make sense to toggle read-only clicking the padlock.
Severity: normal → enhancement
The problem with making the readonly click come back is the column itself. There is one column for the warning icon, an empty space and the readonly lock:

* Empty space:  NOT OK: The user might accidentally click on the space and the 
                        calendar turns readonly.

* Lock icon:        OK: It feels natural to unlock by clicking on the lock icon

* Warning icon: NOT OK: Its not even obvious if the calendar is readonly or not.

If we add a new column for the warning icon, we'll be using up space we won't need in most cases.

Therefore I don't see an alternative other than WONTFIXing this bug. I have added code for my ICS inspector extension that makes this work nevertheless (since its obviously something that developers are OK with), remind me to upload a new version soon.

Stefan, what do you think? Is it ok like this? Do you have another suggestion on how we could fix it?
