User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 Build ID: 20121119183901 Steps to reproduce: In TBird, copy an event from a Google Calendar (MS-Win CTRL-C) Paste it in another calendar (not a Google Calendar) (You don't have to paste it, just examine the clipboard data) Actual results: Other programs that access the second calendar file do not show the event or do not function correctly. This only occurs with events copied from a Google Calendar. Suspect it began with 2012-10-03 version of Lightning/Google Provider. Still happens with TBird 17.0, Lightning 1.0 and Google Provider 1.8) Expected results: According to the Standard, the VCALENDAR entries for CREATED; LAST-MODIFIED have to be UTC **NOT** timezone'd. (From the copied VCALENDAR data CREATED;TZID=Europe/Oslo:20120612T080728 LAST-MODIFIED;TZID=Europe/Oslo:20121024T104916 )
To analyze the copied VCALENDAR snippet, you can use one of the following Validators: http://severinghaus.org/projects/icv/ http://icalvalid.cloudapp.net/ Happy (bug) Hunting. Gene, Bergen NORWAY (UTC+1)
Whoops...TYPO in 'Actual results:' It's LIGHTNING version 1.9 Sorry for the finger slip.
I've changed the 'Provider' to Import/Export. but (without examining the code, I still feel this is a G.Provider problem.
After checking using CalDEV to access my Google calendars, I'm now sure the problem (Non-Standard 'Create:' and 'Last-Modified:' entries is a GData Provider problem. CalDEV is nice, but Google APIs only support 'Show an Alert', while GData Provider does a very nice job of allowing 'SMS' and 'EMail' alerts. Are there any fixes to be expected in Thunderbird 20 and Lightning 2.2. ??

Comment on attachment 687410 [details] [diff] [review] Fix v1 r=philipp, thanks for the patch. I've also updated this locally in the next version of the Provider that includes tasks, but please do check this in anyway.
