(Calendar :: Provider: GData, defect)

Lightning 0.9
Not set

(Whiteboard: [depends-google-issue])

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008120122 Firefox/3.0.5
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version (20081209) Lightening 0.9 (build 2008091719) GDATA provider 0.5.1

Creating a recurring event from Lightening or Google both work as expected.

Changing the event to non-recurring from Google works as expected (changes sync to Lightening).

Changing the event to non-recurring from Lightening fails with MODIFICATION_FAILED when talking to Google Calendar.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a repeating event
2. Edit event in Lightening, set to non-repeating, hit Save.

From the Error Console:

This is a server bug, see:

Please test if this works with Google's CalDAV, see:
Ever confirmed: true
Whiteboard: [depends-google-issue]
This works properly via CalDAV.

Currently, I'm staying with GDATA because CalDAV seems to have an issue setting reminders. I haven't investigated it yet, but this problem with GDATA was less frequent/annoying than the reminder issue with CalDAV.
Google issue 296 was marked FIXED.

reminders: Please use the latest 1.0pre, this should allow reminders to work via Google CalDAV.
