Begin time: 20:00 UTC

Project infrastructure

Website and documentation

Just before the meeting, fsfs noticed that results in a certificate error. This is because the certificate is valid only for Tuxick will look into getting one with subject alternative names added.

Fsfs also asked if we can get a favicon installed with the Davical logo. Tuxick will look into that.

Source code


Fsfs has been busy over the holidays; quite a bit of new activity.

Frank Steinberg sent a merge request that contains a commit that would make the list of exterally bound collections available to every user, and place a "bind" button on both those external collections as well as on all users' collections on their individual calendars.

- we are worried that the full list might contain information that should remain private - in the case of URLs with "ticket" hashes, we might be "giving away the password to a protected resource" - "bind" buttons on other people's calendars and address books might also create the wrong impression

- still, having a UI for creating binds has come up several times (see for example issue #90) - a bind button on a group or resource calendar that a user has access to should pose no problem

Tickets or bug reports

Issue #87 "Support for X-Forwarded-Proto" was discussed: The default should stay as-is, but an option added to trust the x-forwarded-... headers, plus an explanation on how to "do it yourself" in config.php to cater for special setups.
