DAV-Sync, Lighting includes '@<hostname>' in the UID, which possibly breaks other clients
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:27.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140212131424 Steps to reproduce: Set up a radicale 0.8 server Use Thunderbird 24.x + Lighting 2.6x Add radicale as CalDAV server Create event on server Browse .ICS file on server, see that UID has '<something>@<hostname>' Try to sync with different client, e.g. DavDroid and see it break I originally opened this issue on the DavDroid-Tracker at: https://github.com/rfc2822/davdroid/issues/198 And was told that its probably bad style of the calendar client itself (in this case, lighting) adding events that might produce such URLs. So i came here ;). Quoting RFC2822 (the user) from this issue: ========= SNIP ========= 1. SoGo shouldn't PUT ics files with "@" in the file name to the server, but only use %40 [(Please) Stop Using Unsafe Characters in URLs] 2. Radicale should convert the @ to %40 automatically. 3. Regardless of Radicale converts @ to %40 internally, it should always treat @ and %40 the same. ========= SNAP ========= Please note that "SoGo" should be "Lighting" as i was not aware that lighting itself offered CalDAV support and wrongly thought it was the SoGo plugin... Actual results: UIDs containing an unencoded '@' have been pushed to the server, possibly breaking other clients. Expected results: UIDs should, as far as i understand, not contain unencoded '@'s. For more information please refer to the statements of the DavDroid author at the bug listed above. Thanks! -Dario Ernst
I've tested this and I don't see an issue with Lightning here: * Lightning itself doesn't create new events with a @ in the UID * I've tested setting the UID to "a@b" with a debugger and then sending the request -> The Mozilla platform correctly encodes this to "a%40b"
