                 CalDAV Scheduling Extensions to WebDAV
                   draft-desruisseaux-caldav-sched-09

Abstract

   This document defines extensions to the CalDAV "calendar-access"
   feature to specify a standard way of performing scheduling
   transactions with iCalendar-based calendar components.  This document
   defines the "calendar-auto-schedule" feature of CalDAV.

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


1.  Introduction

   This document specifies extensions to the CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] feature to enable scheduling of iCalendar-based [RFC5545]
   calendar components between Calendar Users.  This extension leverages
   the scheduling methods defined in the iCalendar Transport-independent
   Interoperability Protocol (iTIP) [RFC5546] to permit Calendar Users
   to perform scheduling transactions such as schedule, reschedule,
   respond to scheduling request or cancel scheduled calendar
   components, as well as search for busy time information.

   Discussion of this Internet-Draft is taking place on the mailing list
   <https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/caldav>.

1.1.  Terminology

   This specification uses much of the same terminology as iCalendar
   [RFC5545], iTIP [RFC5546], WebDAV [RFC4918], and CalDAV [RFC4791].
   The following definitions are provided to aid the reader in
   understanding this specification.

   Calendar User (CU):  An entity (often a human) that accesses calendar
      information [RFC3283].

   Calendar User Agent (CUA):  Software with which the calendar user
      communicates with a calendar service or local calendar store to
      access calendar information [RFC3283].

   Calendar collection:  A resource that acts as a container of
      references to child calendar object resources [RFC4791].

   Calendar object resource:  A resource representing a calendar object
      (event, to-do, journal entry, or other calendar components)
      [RFC4791].

   Scheduling object resource:  A calendar object resource contained in
      a calendar collection for which the server will take care of
      sending scheduling messages on behalf of the owner of the calendar
      collection.

   Organizer scheduling object resource:  A scheduling object resource
      owned by an Organizer.

   Attendee scheduling object resource:  A scheduling object resource
      owned by an Attendee.

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


   Automatic scheduling transaction:  Add, change or remove operations
      on a scheduling object resource for which the server will deliver
      scheduling messages to other Calendar Users.

   Scheduling message:  A calendar object resource that describes a
      scheduling transaction such as schedule, reschedule, reply, or
      cancel.

   Scheduling Outbox collection:  A resource at which busy time
      information requests are targeted.

   Scheduling Inbox collection:  A collection in which incoming
      scheduling messages are delivered.

1.2.  Approach

   iTIP [RFC5546] outlines a model where Calendar Users exchange
   scheduling messages with one another.  Often times, Calendar User
   Agents are made responsible for generating and sending scheduling
   messages as well as processing incoming scheduling messages.  This
   approach yields a number of problems, including:

   o  For most updates to a scheduled calendar component, Calendar User
      Agents need to address separate scheduling messages to the
      Organizer or the Attendees.

   o  The handling of incoming scheduling messages and the updates to
      calendars impacted by those messages only occurs when Calendar
      User Agents are active.

   o  Due to the update latency, it is possible for calendars of
      different Calendar Users to reflect different, inaccurate states.

   This specification uses an alternative approach where the server is
   made responsible for sending scheduling messages and processing
   incoming scheduling messages.  This approach frees the Calendar User
   Agents from the submission and processing of scheduling messages and
   ensures better consistency of calendar data across users' calendars.
   The operation of creating, modifying or deleting a scheduled calendar
   component in a calendar is enough to trigger the server to deliver
   the necessary scheduling messages to the appropriate Calendar Users.

1.3.  Limitations

   While the scheduling features described in this specification are
   based on iTIP [RFC5546], some of its more complex features have
   deliberately been left out in order to keep this specification
   simple.  In particular, the following iTIP [RFC5546] features are not

   covered: publishing, countering, delegating, refreshing and
   forwarding calendar components, as well as replacing the Organizer of
   a calendar component.

   The goal of this specification is to provide the essential scheduling
   features needed.  It is expected that future extensions will be
   developed to address the more complex features.

1.4.  Notational Conventions

   The Augmented BNF (ABNF) syntax used by this document to specify the
   format definition of new iCalendar elements is defined in [RFC5234].

   The Augmented BNF (ABNF) syntax used by this document to specify the
   format definition of new message header fields to be used with the
   HTTP/1.1 protocol is described in Section 2.1 of [RFC2616].  Since
   this Augmented BNF uses the basic production rules provided in
   Section 2.2 of [RFC2616], these rules apply to this document as well.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   The term "protected" is used in the Conformance field of property

1.5.  XML Namespaces and Processing

   This document uses XML DTD fragments ([W3C.REC-xml-20081126], Section
   3.2) as a purely notational convention.  WebDAV request and response
   bodies cannot be validated by a DTD due to the specific extensibility
   rules defined in Section 17 of [RFC4918] and due to the fact that all
   XML elements defined by this specification use the XML namespace name
   "DAV:".  In particular:

   1.  element names use the "DAV:" namespace,

   2.  element ordering is irrelevant unless explicitly stated,

   3.  extension elements (elements not already defined as valid child
       elements) may be added anywhere, except when explicitly stated
       otherwise,

   4.  extension attributes (attributes not already defined as valid for
       this element) may be added anywhere, except when explicitly
       stated otherwise.

   The XML elements specified in this document are defined in the

   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav" XML namespace registered by CalDAV
   [RFC4791].

   When XML element types in the namespaces "DAV:" and
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav" are referenced in this document
   outside of the context of an XML fragment, the strings "DAV:" and
   "CALDAV:" will be prefixed to the element types, respectively.

   This document inherits, and sometimes extends, DTD productions from
   Section 14 of [RFC4918].

   Also note that some CalDAV XML element names are identical to WebDAV
   XML element names, though their namespace differs.  Care must be
   taken not to confuse the two sets of names.

2.  Scheduling Process

   The process of scheduling an event between different parties often
   involves a series of steps with different actors playing particular
   roles during the whole process.  Typically there is an event
   "Organizer" whose role is to setup an event between one or more
   "Attendees", and this is done by sending out invitations and handling
   responses from each Attendee.

   This process can typically be broken down into two phases.

   In the first phase, the Organizer will query the busy time
   information of each Attendee to determine the most appropriate time
   for the event.  This request is sometimes called a "freebusy" lookup.

   In the second phase, the Organizer sends out invitations to each
   Attendee using the time previously determined from the freebusy
   lookup.  There then follows exchanges between Organizer and Attendees
   regarding the invitation.  Some Attendees may choose to attend at the
   time proposed by the Organizer, others may decline to attend.  The
   Organizer needs to process each of the replies from the Attendees and
   take appropriate action to confirm the event, reschedule it or
   perhaps cancel it.

   The user expectation as to how a calendaring and scheduling system
   should respond in each of these two phases is somewhat different.  In
   the case of a freebusy lookup, users expect to get back results
   immediately so that they can then move on to the invitation phase as
   quickly as possible.  In the case of invitations, it is expected that
   each Attendee will reply with their participation status in their own
   time, so delays in receiving replies are anticipated.  Thus
   calendaring and scheduling systems should treat these two operational
   phases in different ways to accommodate the user expectations, which
   is what this specification does.

   While the scenario described above only covers the case of scheduling
   events between Calendar Users, and requesting busy time information,
   this specification also provides support for the scheduling of to-dos
   between Calendar Users.  For the majority of the following
   discussion, scheduling of events and freebusy lookups will be
   discussed, as these are the more common operations.

3.  Scheduling Support

   A server that supports the features described in this document MUST
   include "calendar-auto-schedule" as a field in the DAV response
   header from an OPTIONS request on any resource that supports any
   scheduling actions, properties, privileges or methods.

   To advertise support for the CalDAV "calendar-auto-schedule" feature
   a server is REQUIRED to support and advertise support for the CalDAV
   "calendar-access" [RFC4791] feature.

   >> Request <<

   OPTIONS /home/cyrus/calendars/inbox/ HTTP/1.1
   Host: cal.example.com

   >> Response <<

   HTTP/1.1 204 No Content
   Date: Thu, 31 Mar 2005 09:00:00 GMT
   Allow: OPTIONS, GET, HEAD, DELETE, TRACE, PROPFIND
   Allow: PROPPATCH, LOCK, UNLOCK, REPORT, ACL
   DAV: 1, 2, 3, access-control
   DAV: calendar-access, calendar-auto-schedule

   In this example, the OPTIONS response indicates that the server
   supports the "calendar-access" and "calendar-auto-schedule" features
   and that resource "/home/cyrus/calendars/inbox/" supports the
   scheduling actions, properties, privileges and methods defined in
   this specification.

4.  Scheduling Collections

   This specification introduces new collection resource types that are
   used to manage scheduling object resources, scheduling privileges as
   well as provide scheduling functionality.

4.1.  Scheduling Outbox Collection

   A scheduling Outbox collection is used as the target for busy time
   information requests.

   A scheduling Outbox collection MUST report the DAV:collection and
   CALDAV:schedule-outbox XML elements in the value of the DAV:
   resourcetype property.  The element type declaration for CALDAV:
   schedule-outbox is:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-outbox EMPTY>

   Example:

      <D:resourcetype xmlns:D="DAV:">
        <D:collection/>
        <C:schedule-outbox xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"/>
      </D:resourcetype>

   New WebDAV ACL [RFC3744] privileges can be set on the scheduling
   Outbox collection to control who is allowed to send scheduling
   messages on behalf of the Calendar User associated with the
   scheduling Outbox collection.  See Section 13.1 for more details.

   A scheduling Outbox collection MUST NOT be a child (at any depth) of
   a calendar collection resource.

   The following WebDAV properties specified in CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] MAY also be defined on scheduling Outbox collections:

      CALDAV:supported-calendar-component-set - when present this
      indicates the allowed calendar component types for scheduling
      messages submitted to the scheduling Outbox collection with the
      POST method.

      CALDAV:supported-calendar-data - when present this indicates the
      allowed media types for scheduling messages submitted to the
      scheduling Outbox collection with the POST method.

      CALDAV:max-resource-size - when present this indicates the maximum
      size of a resource in octets that the server is willing to accept
      for scheduling messages submitted to the scheduling Outbox



Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 12]

      collection with the POST method.

      CALDAV:min-date-time - when present this indicates the earliest
      date and time (in UTC) that the server is willing to accept for
      any DATE or DATE-TIME value in scheduling messages submitted to
      the scheduling Outbox collection with the POST method.

      CALDAV:max-date-time - when present this indicates the latest date
      and time (in UTC) that the server is willing to accept for any
      DATE or DATE-TIME value in scheduling messages submitted to the
      scheduling Outbox collection with the POST method.

      CALDAV:max-instances - when present this indicates the maximum
      number of recurrence instances in scheduling messages submitted to
      the scheduling Outbox collection with the POST method.

      CALDAV:max-attendees-per-instance - when present this indicates
      the maximum number of ATTENDEE properties in any instance of
      scheduling messages submitted to the scheduling Outbox collection
      with the POST method.

   The use of child resources in a scheduling Outbox collection is
   reserved for future revisions or extensions of this specification.

4.2.  Scheduling Inbox Collection

   A scheduling Inbox collection contains copies of incoming scheduling
   messages.  These may be requests sent by an Organizer, or replies
   sent by an Attendee in response to a request.

   A scheduling Inbox collection MUST report the DAV:collection and
   CALDAV:schedule-inbox XML elements in the value of the DAV:
   resourcetype property.  The element type declaration for CALDAV:
   schedule-inbox is:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-inbox EMPTY>

   Example:

      <D:resourcetype xmlns:D="DAV:">
        <D:collection/>
        <C:schedule-inbox xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"/>
      </D:resourcetype>

   Scheduling Inbox collections MUST only contain calendar object
   resources that obey the restrictions specified in iTIP [RFC5546].
   Consequently, scheduling Inbox collections MUST NOT contain any types
   of collection resources.  Restrictions defined in Section 4.1 of



Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 13]

   CalDAV "calendar-access" [RFC4791] on calendar object resources
   contained in calendar collections (e.g., "UID" uniqueness) don't
   apply to calendar object resources contained in a scheduling Inbox
   collection.  Thus, multiple calendar object resources contained in a
   scheduling Inbox collection can have the same "UID" property value
   (i.e., multiple scheduling messages for the same calendar component).

   New WebDAV ACL [RFC3744] privileges can be set on the scheduling
   Inbox collection to control from whom the Calendar User associated
   with the scheduling Inbox collection will accept scheduling messages
   from.  See Section 13.1 for more details.

   A scheduling Inbox collection MUST NOT be a child (at any depth) of a
   calendar collection resource.

   The following WebDAV properties specified in CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] MAY also be defined on scheduling Inbox collections:

      CALDAV:calendar-timezone - when present this contains a time zone
      that the server can use when calendar date-time operations are
      carried out, for example when a time-range CALDAV:calendar-query
      REPORT is targeted at a scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:supported-calendar-component-set - when present this
      indicates the allowed calendar component types for scheduling
      messages delivered to the scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:supported-calendar-data - when present this indicates the
      allowed media types for scheduling messages delivered to the
      scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:max-resource-size - when present this indicates the maximum
      size of a resource in octets that the server is willing to accept
      for scheduling messages delivered to the scheduling Inbox
      collection.

      CALDAV:min-date-time - when present this indicates the earliest
      date and time (in UTC) that the server is willing to accept for
      any DATE or DATE-TIME value in scheduling messages delivered to
      the scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:max-date-time - when present this indicates the latest date
      and time (in UTC) that the server is willing to accept for any
      DATE or DATE-TIME value in scheduling messages delivered to the
      scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:max-instances - when present this indicates the maximum
      number of recurrence instances in scheduling messages delivered to

      the scheduling Inbox collection.

      CALDAV:max-attendees-per-instance - when present this indicates
      the maximum number of ATTENDEE properties in any instance of
      scheduling messages delivered to the scheduling Inbox collection.

4.3.  Calendaring Reports Extensions

   This specification extends the CALDAV:calendar-query and CALDAV:
   calendar-multiget REPORTs to return results for calendar object
   resources in scheduling Inbox collections when the report directly
   targets such a collection.  That is, the Request-URI for a report
   MUST be the URI of the scheduling Inbox collection or of a child
   resource within a scheduling Inbox collection.  A report run on a
   regular collection that includes a scheduling Inbox collection as a
   child resource at any depth MUST NOT examine or return any calendar
   object resources from within any scheduling Inbox collections.

   When a CALDAV:calendar-query REPORT includes a time-range query and
   targets a scheduling Inbox collection, if any calendar object
   resources contain "VEVENT" calendar components that do not include a
   "DTSTART" iCalendar property (as allowed by iTIP [RFC5546]) then such
   components MUST always match the time-range query test.

   Note that the CALDAV:free-busy-query REPORT is not supported on
   scheduling Inbox collections.

5.  Scheduling Transactions

   When a calendar object resource is created, modified or removed from
   a calendar collection (either via a PUT, DELETE, COPY or MOVE HTTP
   request), the server examines the calendar data and checks to see
   whether the data represents a scheduling object resource.  If it
   does, the server will automatically attempt to deliver a scheduling
   message to the appropriate Calendar Users.  Several types of
   scheduling operation can occur in this case, equivalent to iTIP
   "REQUEST", "REPLY", "CANCEL", and "ADD" operations.

5.1.  Identifying Scheduling Object Resources

   Calendar object resources on which the server performs automatic
   scheduling transactions are referred to as scheduling object
   resources.  There are two types of scheduling object resources:
   organizer scheduling object resources, and attendee scheduling object
   resources.

   A calendar object resource is considered to be a valid organizer
   scheduling object resource if the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property is
   present and set in all the calendar components to a value that
   matches one of the calendar user addresses of the owner of the
   calendar collection.

   A calendar object resource is considered to be a valid attendee
   scheduling object resource if the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property is
   present and set in all the calendar components to the same value and
   doesn't match one of the calendar user addresses of the owner of the
   calendar collection, and that at least one of the "ATTENDEE"
   iCalendar property values match one of the calendar user addresses of
   the owner of the calendar collection.

   The creation of attendee scheduling object resources is typically
   done by the server, with the resource being stored in an appropriate
   calendar collection.

5.2.  Handling Scheduling Object Resources

   The server's behavior when processing a scheduling object resource
   depends on whether it is owned by the Organizer or an Attendee
   specified in the calendar data.

5.2.1.  Organizer Scheduling Object Resources

   An Organizer can create, modify or remove a scheduling object
   resource by issuing HTTP requests with an appropriate method.  The
   create, modify and remove behaviors for the server are each described



Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 16]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


   next, and the way these are invoked via HTTP requests is described in
   Section 5.2.3.

5.2.1.1.  Create

   When a scheduling object resource is created by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property to determine if a
   scheduling message should be delivered to this Attendee according to
   the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property parameter (see
   Section 10.1) as described in the table below:

              +------------------+-------------+
              | SCHEDULE-AGENT   | iTIP METHOD |
              +==================+=============+
              | SERVER (default) | REQUEST     |
              +------------------+-------------+
              | CLIENT           | --          |
              +------------------+-------------+
              | NONE             | --          |
              +------------------+-------------+

   The attempt to deliver the scheduling message will either succeed or
   fail.  In all cases, the server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
   iCalendar property parameter (see Section 10.3) to the "ATTENDEE"
   iCalendar property in the scheduling object resource being created,
   and set its value as described in Section 9.2.  This will result in
   the created calendar object resource differing from the calendar data
   sent in the HTTP request.  As a result clients can reload the
   calendar data from the server as soon as it is created on the server
   in order to update to the new server generated state information.
   Servers MUST NOT set the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property parameter on the
   "ATTENDEE" property of Attendees for which it did not attempt to
   deliver a scheduling message.

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server MAY reject any attempt to set the "PARTSTAT" iCalendar
       property parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property of
       other users in the calendar object resource to a value other than
       "NEEDS-ACTION" if the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property parameter value
       is not present or set to the value "SERVER".  To maintain
       consistency across Organizers and Attendees, a server will
       typically choose to enforce the requirement that only an Attendee
       can change their own "PARTSTAT" to a value other than "NEEDS-
       ACTION".

   2.  The server MAY reject attempts to create a scheduling object
       resource that specifies a "UID" property value already specified

       in a scheduling object resource contained in another calendar
       collection of the Organizer.

   3.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 13.1 when handling the creation of a
       scheduling object resource.

   4.  Restrictions on calendar object resources defined in Section 4.1
       of [RFC4791] MUST also be enforced.

5.2.1.2.  Modify

   When a scheduling object resource is modified by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property in the new calendar data
   to determine which ones have the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" iCalendar property
   parameter.  It will then need to compare this with the "ATTENDEE"
   properties in the existing calendar object resource that is being
   modified.

   For each Attendee in the old and new calendar data on a per-instance
   basis, and taking into account the addition or removal of Attendees,
   the server will determine whether to deliver a scheduling message to
   the Attendee.  The following table determines whether the server
   needs to deliver a scheduling message, and if so which iTIP
   scheduling method to use.  The values "SERVER", "CLIENT", and "NONE"
   in the top and left titles of the table refer to the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" property, and the values "<Absent>"
   and "<Removed>" are used to cover the cases where the "ATTENDEE"
   property is not present (Old) or is being removed (New).

   +---------------+-----------------------------------------------+

   The attempt to deliver the scheduling message will either succeed or
   fail.  In all cases, the server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
   iCalendar property parameter to the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property in
   the scheduling object resource being modified, and set its value as
   described in Section 9.2.  This will result in the created calendar
   object resource differing from the calendar data sent in the HTTP
   request.  As a result clients MAY reload the calendar data from the
   server as soon as it is modified on the server in order to update to
   the new server generated state information.

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server MAY reject any attempt to set the "PARTSTAT" iCalendar
       property parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property of
       other users in the calendar object resource to a value other than
       "NEEDS-ACTION" if the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property parameter value
       is not present or set to the value "SERVER".  To maintain
       consistency for Organizers and Attendees, a server will typically
       choose to enforce the requirement that only an Attendee can
       change their own "PARTSTAT" to a value other than "NEEDS-ACTION".

   2.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 13.1 when handling the modification of a
       scheduling object resource.

   3.  Restrictions on calendar object resources defined in Section 4.1
       of [RFC4791] MUST also be enforced.

5.2.1.3.  Remove

   When a scheduling object resource is removed by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property in the scheduling object
   resource being removed to determine which ones have the "SCHEDULE-
   AGENT" iCalendar property parameter.

   For each Attendee the server will determine whether to attempt to
   deliver a scheduling message into the Attendee's scheduling Inbox
   collection, based on the table below:

              +------------------+-------------+
              | SCHEDULE-AGENT   | iTIP METHOD |
              +==================+=============+

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 13.1 when handling the deletion of a
       scheduling object resource.

5.2.2.  Attendee Scheduling Object Resources

   An Attendee can create, modify or remove a scheduling object resource
   by issuing HTTP requests with an appropriate method.  The create,
   modify and remove behaviors for the server are each described next,
   and the way these are invoked via HTTP requests is described in
   Section 5.2.3.

5.2.2.1.  Allowed Attendee Changes

   Attendees are allowed to make some changes to a scheduling object
   resource, though key properties such as start time, end time,
   location, and summary are typically under the control of the
   Organizer.

   The server MUST allow Attendees to:

   1.  change their own "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property parameter value.

   2.  add, modify or remove any "TRANSP" iCalendar properties.

   3.  add, modify or remove any "PERCENT-COMPLETE" iCalendar
       properties.

5.2.2.2.  Create

   Typically an Attendee does not create scheduling object resources, as
   scheduling messages delivered to them on the server are automatically
   processed by the server and placed on one of their calendars (see
   Section 6).  However, in some cases a scheduling message may get
   delivered directly to the client, and the Attendee may wish to store
   that on the server.  In that case the client creates a scheduling
   object resource in a suitable calendar belonging to the Attendee.  It
   can then set the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" iCalendar property parameter on all
   "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties in the resource to determine how the
   server treats the resource.  The value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   iCalendar property parameter on all "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties
   MUST be the same.

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SCHEDULE-AGENT | Action                                           |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process changes to    |
   | (default)      | the resource using the normal rules for attendee |
   |                | scheduling object resources.                     |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | Attendee replies etc.                            |
   |                |                                                  |
   | NONE           | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

   In some cases a server may not be able to process an Attendee
   scheduling object resource that originated from another system (i.e.,
   where the server is unable to deliver scheduling messages to the
   Organizer).  In such cases the server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
   iCalendar property parameter to all "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties
   in the resource with a value indicating a suitable error.

5.2.2.3.  Modify

   When a scheduling object resource is modified by an Attendee, the
   server behavior depends on the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   iCalendar property parameter on the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties:

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SCHEDULE-AGENT | Action                                           |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process the removal   |
   | (default)      | using the behavior listed below.                 |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | any Attendee replies etc.                        |
   |                |                                                  |
   | NONE           | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

   The server will inspect the changes by comparing the new scheduling
   object resource with the existing scheduling object resource.

   If the Attendee changes one or more "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property
   values on any component, or adds an overridden component with a
   changed "PARTSTAT" property, then the server MUST deliver an iTIP
   "REPLY" scheduling message to the Organizer to indicate the new
   participation status of the Attendee.

   If the Attendee adds an "EXDATE" property value to, in effect, remove
   an overridden instance, the server MUST deliver an iTIP "REPLY"
   scheduling message to the Organizer to indicate that the Attendee has
   declined to instance (i.e., the Attendee's "PARTSTAT" iCalendar
   property parameter value is set to "DECLINED").

   The attempt to deliver the scheduling message will either succeed or
   fail.  In all cases, the server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
   iCalendar property parameter to the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property in
   the scheduling object resource being created, and set its value as
   described in Section 9.2.  This will result in the created calendar
   object resource differing from the calendar data sent in the HTTP
   request.  As a result clients MAY reload the calendar data from the
   server as soon as it is stored in order to update to the new server
   generated state information.

5.2.2.4.  Remove

   When a scheduling object resource is removed by an Attendee, the
   server behavior depends on the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   iCalendar property parameter on the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties:

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process the removal   |
   | (default)      | using either behaviors (1) or (2) listed below.  |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | any Attendee replies etc.                        |
   |                |                                                  |

   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

   1.  If the HTTP request contains a "Schedule-Reply" request header
       set to the value "T" or there is no "Schedule-Reply" request
       header, then the server MUST attempt to deliver a scheduling
       message to the Organizer indicating that the Attendee has a
       "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property parameter value set to "DECLINED".
       That is, the Attendee has chosen not to attend any instances.  If
       the server is unable to deliver the scheduling message, the
       remove action MUST fail, and an appropriate "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
       iCalendar property parameter set on the "ORGANIZER" property in
       the scheduling object resource stored by the server.

   2.  If the HTTP request contains a request header "Schedule-Reply"
       set to the value "F", the server MUST NOT attempt to deliver a
       scheduling message.  The resource is simply removed.  This
       provides the client a way to silently remove unwanted scheduling
       attempts.

5.2.3.  HTTP Methods

   This section describes how use of various HTTP methods on a
   scheduling object resource will cause a create, modify or remove
   action on that resource as described above.  The use of these methods
   is subject to the restrictions in [RFC4791], in addition to what is
   described below.

5.2.3.1.  PUT

   When a PUT method request is received, the server will execute the
   following actions, provided all appropriate preconditions are met:

5.2.3.2.  COPY

   When a COPY method request is received, the server will execute the
   following actions based on the source and destination collections in
   the request:

   Note 2.  The same rules as used for DELETE below are applied for the
   source of the MOVE request.

5.2.3.4.  DELETE

   When a DELETE method is targeted at a scheduling object resource the
   server will execute the Remove action.

   When a DELETE method is targeted at a calendar collection the server
   will execute the Remove action on all scheduling object resources
   contained in the calendar collection.

5.2.5.  DTSTAMP and SEQUENCE Properties

   Whenever the server generates a scheduling message for delivery to a
   Calendar User, it MUST ensure that a "DTSTAMP" iCalendar property is
   present and MUST set the value to the UTC time that the scheduling
   message was generated (as required by iCalendar).

   iTIP [RFC5546] places certain requirements on how the "SEQUENCE"



Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 27]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


   iCalendar property value in scheduling messages changes.  The server
   MUST ensure that for each type of scheduling operation, the
   "SEQUENCE" iCalendar property value is appropriately updated.  If the
   client does not update the "SEQUENCE" iCalendar property itself when
   that is required, the server MUST update the property.

5.2.6.  Limit Recurrence Instances Sent to Attendees

   When delivering scheduling messages for recurring calendar components
   to Attendees, servers MUST ensure that Attendees only get information
   about recurrence instances that explicitly include them as an
   Attendee.

   For example, if an Attendee is invited to a single recurrence
   instance of a recurring event, and no others, the scheduling object
   resource contained in the Organizer's calendar collection will
   contain an overridden instance in the form of a separate calendar
   component.  That separate calendar component will include the
   "ATTENDEE" property referencing the "one-off" Attendee.  That
   Attendee will not be listed in any other calendar components in the
   scheduling object resource.  The scheduling message that will be
   delivered to the Attendee will only contain information about this
   overridden instance.

   As another example, an Attendee could be excluded from one instance
   of a recurring event.  In that case the scheduling object resource
   contained in the calendar collection of the Organizer will include an
   overridden instance with an "ATTENDEE" list that does not include the
   Attendee being excluded.  The scheduling message that will be
   delivered to the Attendee will not specify the overridden instance
   but rather include an "EXDATE" property in the master recurring
   component defining the recurrence set.

5.2.7.  Forcing the Server to Send a Scheduling Message

   The iCalendar property parameter "SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND" defined in
   Section 10.2 can be used by a Calendar User to force the server to
   send a scheduling message to an Attendee or the Organizer in a
   situation where the server would not normally send a scheduling
   message.  For instance, an Organizer could use this property
   parameter to request an Attendee, that previously declined an
   invitation, to reconsider their participation status without being
   forced to modify the event.

6.  Processing Incoming Scheduling Messages

   Scheduling operations can cause the delivery of a scheduling message
   into an Organizer's or Attendee's scheduling Inbox collection.  In
   the former case the scheduling messages are replies from Attendees,
   in the latter case the scheduling messages are requests,
   cancellations or additions from the Organizer.

   The server will automatically process incoming scheduling messages
   and make them available in the scheduling Inbox collection as an
   indicator to the client that a scheduling operation has taken place.

   The server MUST take into account privileges on the scheduling Inbox
   collection, when processing incoming scheduling messages, to
   determine whether delivery of the scheduling message is allowed.
   Privileges on calendars containing any matching scheduling object
   resource are not considered in this case.  Additionally, servers MUST
   take into account any scheduling Inbox collection preconditions (see
   Section 4.2) when delivering the scheduling message, and it MUST take
   into account the similar preconditions on any calendar collection
   which contains, or would contain, the corresponding scheduling object
   resource.

6.1.  Processing Attendee Replies

   For a scheduling message reply sent by an Attendee, the server first
   locates the corresponding scheduling object resource belonging to the
   Organizer.

   The server MUST then update the "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property
   parameter value of each "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property in the
   scheduling object resource to match the changes indicated in the
   reply (taking into account the fact that an Attendee could have
   created a new overridden iCalendar component to indicate different
   participation status on one or more recurrence instances of a
   recurring event).

   The server MUST also update or add the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property
   parameter on each matching "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property and set its
   value to that of the "REQUEST-STATUS" property in the reply, or to
   "2.0" if "REQUEST-STATUS" is not present (also taking into account
   recurrence instances).  If there are multiple "REQUEST-STATUS"
   properties in the reply, the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property parameter
   value is set to a comma-separated list of status codes, one from each
   "REQUEST-STATUS" property.

   The server SHOULD send scheduling messages to all the other Attendees
   indicating the change in participation status of the Attendee

   replying, subject to the recurrence requirements of Section 5.2.6.

   The scheduling message MUST only appear in the Organizer's scheduling
   Inbox collection once all automatic processing has been done.

6.2.  Processing Organizer Requests, Additions, and Cancellations

   For a scheduling message sent by an Organizer, the server first tries
   to locate a corresponding scheduling object resource belonging to the
   Attendee.  If no matching scheduling object resource exists, the
   server treats the scheduling message as a new message, otherwise it
   is treated as an update.

   In the case of a new message, the server MUST process the scheduling
   message and create a new scheduling object resource in an appropriate
   calendar collection for the Attendee.

   In the case of an update, the server MUST process the scheduling
   message and update the matching scheduling object resource belonging
   to the Attendee to reflect the changes sent by the Organizer.

   In any case, the scheduling message MUST only appear in the
   Attendee's scheduling Inbox collection once all automatic processing
   has been done.

6.3.  Default Calendar Collection

   The server is REQUIRED to process scheduling messages that specify a
   request for a new calendar component received for an Attendee by
   creating a new scheduling object resource in a calendar collection
   belonging to the Attendee.  A Calendar User who can participate as an
   Attendee in a scheduling operation MUST have at least one valid
   calendar collection available.  If there is no valid calendar
   collection, then the server MUST reject the attempt to deliver the
   scheduling message to the Attendee.

   Servers MAY provide support for a default calendar collection, that
   is, the calendar collection in which new scheduling object resources
   will be created on reception of scheduling messages that specify a
   request for a new calendar component.  The CALDAV:schedule-default-
   calendar-URL WebDAV property, which MAY be defined on the scheduling
   Inbox collection of a Calendar User, specifies if this Calendar User
   has a default calendar collection.  See Section 12.2.

   Servers MUST create new scheduling object resources in the default
   calendar collection, if the CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL
   WebDAV property is set.

   Servers MAY allow clients to change the default calendar collection
   by changing the value of the CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL
   WebDAV property on the scheduling Inbox collection.  However, they
   MUST ensure that any new value stored for that property refers to a
   valid calendar collection belonging to the owner of the scheduling
   inbox collection.

   Servers MUST reject any attempt to delete the default calendar
   collection.

6.3.1.  Additional Method Preconditions

   This specification defines additional method preconditions (see
   Section 16 of WebDAV [RFC4918]) to provide machine-parsable
   information in error responses.

6.3.1.1.  CALDAV:default-calendar-delete-allowed Precondition

   Name:  default-calendar-delete-allowed

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Apply to:  DELETE

   Use with:  403 Forbidden

   Purpose:  (precondition) -- The client attempted to delete the
      calendar collection currently referenced by the CALDAV:schedule-
      default-calendar-URL property, or attempted to remove the CALDAV:
      schedule-default-calendar-URL property on the scheduling Inbox
      collection on a server that doesn't allow such operations.

      don't allow clients to change the CALDAV:schedule-default-
      calendar-URL property would simply return the DAV:cannot-modify-
      protected-property precondition defined in Section 16 of WebDAV

6.4.  Scheduling Messages as Notifications

   Once the processing of an incoming scheduling message is completed by
   the server, the message is made available as a child resource in the
   scheduling Inbox collection of the Calendar User that received the
   message, to serve as a notification that a change has been made to
   the corresponding scheduling object resource.  Scheduling messages
   are typically removed from the scheduling Inbox collection by the
   client once the calendar user has acknowledged the change.

7.  Request for Busy Time Information

   The POST method is used to request busy time information of one or
   more Calendar Users by targeting a freebusy request at the scheduling
   Outbox collection of the Calendar User requesting the information
   (the Organizer).  The request body of a POST method MUST contain a
   "VFREEBUSY" calendar component with the "METHOD" iCalendar property
   set to the value "REQUEST" as specified in Section 3.3.2 of iTIP
   [RFC5546].  The resource identified by the Request-URI MUST be a
   resource collection of type CALDAV:schedule-outbox (Section 4.1).
   The "ORGANIZER" property in the "VFREEBUSY" component MUST match that
   of the Calendar User who "owns" the Outbox collection.

7.1.  Status Codes

   The following are examples of response codes one would expect to be
   used for this method.  Note, however, that unless explicitly
   prohibited any 2/3/4/5xx series response code may be used in a
   response.

      200 (OK) - The command succeeded.

      204 (No Content) - The command succeeded.

      400 (Bad Request) - The client has provided an invalid scheduling
      message.

      403 (Forbidden) - The client cannot submit a scheduling message to
      the specified Request-URI.

      404 (Not Found) - The URL in the Request-URI was not present.

      423 (Locked) - The specified resource is locked and the client
      either is not a lock owner or the lock type requires a lock token
      to be submitted and the client did not submit it.

7.2.  Additional Method Preconditions

   This specification defines additional method preconditions for the
   POST method.  Preconditions defined in WebDAV ACL [RFC3744] and
   CalDAV [RFC4791] that applies to the POST method are also listed here
   for completeness.

7.3.  Response to a POST request

   A POST request may deliver a scheduling message to one or more
   Calendar Users.  Thus the response needs to contain separate status
   information for each recipient.  This specification defines a new XML
   response body to convey multiple recipient status.

   A response to a POST method that indicates status for one or more
   recipients MUST be an XML document with a CALDAV:schedule-response
   XML element as its root element.  This MUST contain one or more
   CALDAV:response elements for each recipient, with each of those
   containing elements that indicate which recipient they correspond to,
   the scheduling status for that recipient, any error codes and an
   optional description.  See Section 14.1 for the detail on the child
   elements.

   In the case of a freebusy request, the CALDAV:response elements can
   also contain CALDAV:calendar-data elements which contain freebusy
   information (e.g., an iCalendar VFREEBUSY component) indicating the
   busy state of the corresponding recipient, assuming that the freebusy

8.  Avoiding Conflicts when Updating Scheduling Object Resources

   Because replies from Attendees and updates from Organizers are
   automatically processed by the server, clients might be in a
   situation where their copy of a calendar resource is different from
   the one currently on the server.  When an Attendee or Organizer makes
   a change to the client's copy of the calendar resource, if the client
   writes the data to the server it could overwrite the changes already
   made there.  Typically, clients use the ETag value and If-Match
   request headers to avoid the "lost update problem".

   Calendar user agents can also use ETag and If-Match to avoid this
   problem.  However, when doing so the client will likely have to
   resolve the differences between the new resource and the original
   one, and the changes made by the Attendee or Organizer in the client.
   This can be a complicated comparison particularly when recurring
   components are present.

   Additionally, the data on the server may change frequently as
   Attendees change their participation status, triggering updates to
   the Organizer and consequently other Attendees' copies of the
   scheduling object resource.  If the ETag/If-Match behavior were used,
   clients would be forced to reconcile their cached copy of a
   scheduling object resource with the updated one on the server in
   order to attempt to write the user's changes back.  This could lead
   to a race condition that can effectively result in a temporary denial
   of service when, for example, there is an event with a large Attendee
   list.  A "storm" of updates will occur if Attendees all start
   responding at the same time, and this would prevent Attendees and the
   Organizer from being able to update their own copies of the
   scheduling object resource as the server copy is changing frequently.

   What would be preferable is having the server determine the best way
   to merge changes made on the server with changes being made by the
   client.  For example, if an Attendee changes their participation
   status and triggers an update to the Organizer's copy of the event,
   but the Organizer also updates their cached copy of the event and
   attempts to write it back, rather than failing on a conditional If-
   Match when the Organizer writes their data, the server would instead
   take the changes made by the Organizer and apply the Attendee changes
   and store the result.  Thus a form of "weak" ETag matching behavior
   is needed such that scheduling changes made automatically on the
   server do not invalidate the tag, so that when clients store data
   conditionally based on the tag value, the server knows it can apply
   the merge behavior.

   In order to do that, this specification introduces a new WebDAV
   resource property CALDAV:schedule-tag with a corresponding response



Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 39]

   header "Schedule-Tag", and a new "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" request
   header to allow client changes to be appropriately merged with server
   changes in the case where the changes on the server were the result
   of an "inconsequential" scheduling message update.  An
   "inconsequential" scheduling message is one which simply updates the
   status information of Attendees due to a reply from an Attendee.

   Servers MUST support requests targeted at scheduling object resources
   using the "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" request header.  Consequently, the
   server MUST support the "Schedule-Tag" response header and CALDAV:
   schedule-tag property for scheduling object resources.  Servers MUST
   automatically resolve conflicts with "inconsequential" changes done
   to scheduling object resources when the "If-Schedule-Tag-Match"
   request header is specified.

   The If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header applies only to the Request-
   URI, and not to the Destination of a COPY or MOVE in the same way as
   the If-Match request header.

   Clients SHOULD use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match header on requests that
   update scheduling object resources.

   A response to any successful GET or PUT request targeting a
   scheduling object resource MUST include a Schedule-Tag response
   header with the value set to the same value as the CALDAV:schedule-
   tag WebDAV property of the resource.

   A response to any successful COPY or MOVE request that specifies a
   Destination request header targeting a scheduling object resource
   MUST include a Schedule-Tag response header with the value set to the
   same value as the CALDAV:schedule-tag WebDAV property of the resource
   identified in the Request-URI.

   The Schedule-Tag feature is designed to be used to address the
   problem of "inconsequential" changes on the server only.  Normal ETag
   operations are used in all other cases, e.g., for synchronization.

   The value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag property changes according to
   these rules:

   o  For an Organizer's copy of a scheduling object resource:

      1.  The server MUST NOT change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property
          value when the scheduling object resource is updated as the
          result of automatically processing a scheduling message reply
          from an Attendee.  For instance, when an Attendee replies to
          the Organizer, the CALDAV:schedule-tag property is unchanged
          after the Organizer's scheduling object resource has been

          automatically updated by the server with the Attendee's new
          participation status.

      2.  The server MUST change CALDAV:schedule-tag property value when
          the scheduling object resource is changed directly via an HTTP
          request (e.g., PUT, COPY or MOVE).

   o  For an Attendee's copy of a scheduling object resource:

      1.  The server MUST change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property value
          when the scheduling object resource is changed as the result
          of processing a scheduling message update from an Organizer
          that contains changes other than just the participation status
          of Attendees.

      2.  The server MUST NOT change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property
          value when the scheduling object resource is changed as the
          result of processing a scheduling message update from an
          Organizer that only specify changes in the participation
          status of Attendees.  For instance, when Attendee "A" replies
          to Organizer "O", and Attendee "B" receives a scheduling
          message update from Organizer "O" with the new participation
          status of Attendee "A", the CALDAV:schedule-tag property of
          Attendee "B"s scheduling object resource MUST NOT be changed.

      3.  The server MUST change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property value
          when the scheduling object resource is changed directly via an
          HTTP request (e.g., PUT, COPY or MOVE).

8.1.  PUT

   Clients can use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header to do a PUT
   request that ensures that "inconsequential" changes on the server do
   not result in a precondition error.  The value of the request header
   is set to the last Schedule-Tag value received for the resource being
   modified.  If the value of the If-Schedule-Tag-Match header matches
   the current value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag property the server MUST
   take any "ATTENDEE" property changes for all Attendees other than the
   owner of the scheduling object resource and apply those to the new
   resource being stored.  Otherwise, the server MUST fail the request
   with a 412 Precondition Failed status code.

8.2.  DELETE

   Clients can use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header to do a
   DELETE request that ensures that "inconsequential" changes on the
   server do not result in a precondition error.  The value of the
   request header is set to the last Schedule-Tag value received for the

   resource being deleted.  If the value of the If-Schedule-Tag-Match
   header matches the current value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag property
   the server performs the normal DELETE request processing for the
   resource.  Otherwise, the server MUST fail the request with a 412
   Precondition Failed status code.

8.3.  COPY or MOVE

   Clients can use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header to do COPY
   or MOVE requests that ensures that "inconsequential" changes on the
   server do not result in a precondition error.  The value of the
   request header is set to the last Schedule-Tag value received for the
   resource being copied or moved.  If the value of the If-Schedule-Tag-
   Match header matches the current value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag
   property the server performs the normal COPY or MOVE request
   processing for the resource.  Otherwise, the server MUST fail the
   request with a 412 Precondition Failed status code.

9.  Other Scheduling Considerations

9.1.  Attendee Participation Status

   This section specifies additional requirements on the handling of the
   "PARTSTAT" property parameter when the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property
   parameter on the corresponding "ATTENDEE" property is set to the
   value "SERVER" or is not present.

   Clients SHOULD, and servers MUST reset the "PARTSTAT" property
   parameter value of all "ATTENDEE" properties, except the one that
   corresponds to the Organizer, to "NEEDS-ACTION" when the Organizer
   reschedules an event.

   A reschedule of an event occurs when any "DTSTART", "DTEND",
   "DURATION", "DUE", "RRULE", "RDATE", or "EXDATE" property changes in
   a calendar component such that existing recurrence instances are
   impacted by the changes, as shown in the table below.

   +----------+--------------------------------------------------------+
   | Property | Description                                            |
   +----------+--------------------------------------------------------+
   | DTSTART  | Any change to these properties MUST result in          |
   | DTEND    | "PARTSTAT" being set to "NEEDS-ACTION"                 |
   | DURATION |                                                        |
   | DUE      |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |

   | RRULE    | A change to or addition of this property that results  |
   |          | in the addition of new recurring instances or a change |
   |          | in time for existing recurring instances MUST result   |
   |          | in "PARTSTAT" being reset to "NEEDS-ACTION" on each    |

   | EXDATE   | A change to or removal of this property that results   |
   |          | in the re-instatement of recurring instances MUST      |
   |          | result in "PARTSTAT" being reset to "NEEDS-ACTION" on  |
   |          | each affected component.                               |
   +----------+--------------------------------------------------------+

   The server MAY allow the Organizer's client to change an Attendee's
   "PARTSTAT" property parameter value to "NEEDS-ACTION" at any other
   time (e.g., when the "LOCATION" property value changes, an Organizer
   might wish to re-invite Attendees who may be impacted by the change).

9.2.  Schedule Status Values

   When scheduling with an Attendee there are two types of status
   information that can be returned during the transaction.  The first
   status information is a "delivery" status that indicates whether the
   scheduling message from the Organizer to the Attendee was delivered
   or not, or what the current status of delivery is.  The second status
   information is a "reply" status corresponding to the Attendee's own
   "REQUEST-STATUS" information from the scheduling message reply that
   is sent back to the Organizer.

   Similarly, when an Attendee sends a reply back to the Organizer,
   there will be "delivery" status information for the scheduling
   message sent to the Organizer.  However, there is no "REQUEST-STATUS"
   sent back by the Organizer, so there is no equivalent of the "reply"
   status as per scheduling messages to Attendees.

   The "delivery" status information on an "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE"
   iCalendar property is conveyed in the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property
   parameter value (Section 10.3).  The status code value for "delivery"
   status can be one of the following:

   The status code for "reply" status can be any of the valid iTIP
   [RFC5546] "REQUEST-STATUS" values.

   The 1.xx "REQUEST-STATUS" codes are new.  This specification modifies
   item (2) of Section 3.6 of [RFC5546] by adding the following
   restriction:

      For a 1.xx code, all components MUST have exactly the same code.

   Definition of the new 1.xx codes is as follows:

9.2.1.  Status Code 1.0

   Status Code:  1.0

   Status Description:  Pending.

   Status Exception Data:  None.

   Description:  Delivery of the iTIP message is pending.

9.2.2.  Status Code 1.1

   Status Code:  1.1

   Status Description:  Sent.

   Status Exception Data:  None.

   Description:  The iTIP message has been sent, though no information
      about successful delivery is known.

   Status Exception Data:  None.

   Description:  The iTIP message has been sent and delivered.

9.3.  Organizer is an Attendee

   The Organizer of a scheduled event may also be an Attendee of that
   event.  In such cases the server MUST NOT send a scheduling message
   to the Attendee that matches the Organizer.

10.  Additional iCalendar Property Parameters

   This specification defines additional iCalendar property parameters
   to support the CalDAV scheduling extensions.

10.1.  Schedule Agent Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-AGENT

   Purpose:  To specify the agent expected to deliver scheduling
      messages to the corresponding Organizer or Attendee.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      scheduleagentparam = "SCHEDULE-AGENT" "="
                        ("SERVER"      ; The server handles scheduling
                       / "CLIENT"      ; The client handles scheduling
                       / "NONE"        ; No automatic scheduling
                       / x-name        ; Experimental type
                       / iana-token)   ; Other IANA registered type
                                       ;
                                       ; Default is SERVER

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on "ORGANIZER"
      or "ATTENDEE" iCalendar properties.  In the absence of this
      parameter, the value "SERVER" MUST be used for the default
      behavior.  The value determines whether or not an automatic
      scheduling transaction on a server will cause a scheduling message
      to be sent to the corresponding Calendar User identified by the
      "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE" property value.  When the value "SERVER"
      is specified, or the parameter is absent, then it is the server's
      responsibility to send a scheduling message as part of an
      automatic scheduling transaction.  When the value "CLIENT" is
      specified, that indicates that the client is handling scheduling
      messages with the Calendar User itself.  When "NONE" is specified,
      no scheduling messages are being sent to the Calendar User.

      Servers MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      sent as the result of an automatic scheduling transaction.

      Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      that they themselves send.

      Servers and clients MUST treat x-name and iana-token values they
      don't recognize the same way as they would the "NONE" value.

   Example:

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-AGENT=SERVER:mailto:bernard@example.com

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-AGENT=NONE:mailto:cyrus@example.com

10.2.  Schedule Force Send Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND

   Purpose:  To force a scheduling message to be sent to the Calendar
      User specified by the property.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      scheduleforcesendparam = "SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND" "="
                              ("REQUEST"    ; Force a "REQUEST"
                             / "REPLY"      ; Force a "REPLY"
                             / iana-token)  ; IANA registered method

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on "ATTENDEE"
      and "ORGANIZER" properties on which the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property
      parameter is set to the value "SERVER" or is not specified.  This
      property parameter is used to force a server to send a scheduling
      message to a specific Calendar User in situations where the server
      would not send a scheduling message otherwise (e.g., when no
      change that warrants the delivery of a new scheduling message was
      performed on the scheduling object resource).  An Organizer MAY
      specify this parameter on an "ATTENDEE" property with the value
      "REQUEST" to force a "REQUEST" scheduling message to be sent to
      this Attendee.  An Attendee MAY specify this parameter on the
      "ORGANIZER" with the value "REPLY" to force a "REPLY" scheduling
      message to be sent to the Organizer.

      Servers MUST NOT preserve this property parameter in scheduling
      object resources, nor include it in any scheduling messages sent
      as the result of an automatic scheduling transaction.

      Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      that they themselves send.

      Servers MUST set the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" parameter of the "ATTENDEE"
      or "ORGANIZER" to 2.3 (i.e., "Success, invalid property parameter
      ignored", see Section 3.6 of [RFC5546]) when the "SCHEDULE-FORCE-
      SEND" parameter is set to a x-name or iana-token value they don't
      recognize.

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND=REQUEST:mailto:bernard@example.com

      ORGANIZER;SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND=REPLY:mailto:bernard@example.com

10.3.  Schedule Status Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-STATUS

   Purpose:  To specify the status codes returned from processing of the
      most recent scheduling message sent to the corresponding Attendee,
      or received from the corresponding Organizer.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      schedulestatusparam = "SCHEDULE-STATUS" "="
                           ( statcode
                          / DQUOTE statcode *("," statcode) DQUOTE)
      ; "statcode" is defined in Section 3.8.8.3 of
      ; [RFC5545]. Value is a single
      ; "statcode" or a comma-separated list of "statcode" values.

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on the
      "ATTENDEE" and "ORGANIZER" properties.

      Servers MUST add this property parameter to any "ATTENDEE"
      properties corresponding to Calendar Users who were sent a
      scheduling message via an automatic scheduling transaction.
      Clients SHOULD NOT change or remove this parameter if it was
      provided by the server.  In the case where the client is handling
      the scheduling, the client MAY add, change or remove this
      parameter to indicate the last scheduling message status it
      received.

      Servers MUST add this parameter to any "ORGANIZER" properties
      corresponding to Calendar Users who were sent a scheduling message
      reply by an Attendee via an automatic scheduling transaction.
      Clients SHOULD NOT change or remove this parameter if it was
      provided by the server.  In the case where the client is handling
      the scheduling the client MAY add, change or remove this parameter
      to indicate the last scheduling message status it received.

      Servers MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      sent as the result of an automatic scheduling transaction.

11.  Additional Message Header Fields

   This specification defines additional HTTP request and response
   headers for use with CalDAV.

11.1.  Schedule-Reply Request Header


      Schedule-Reply = "Schedule-Reply" ":" ("T" | "F")

   Example:

      Schedule-Reply: F

   When an Attendee removes a scheduling object resource, and the
   Schedule-Reply header is not present, or present and set to the value
   "T", the server MUST send an appropriate reply scheduling message
   with the Attendee's "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property parameter value set
   to "DECLINED" as part of its normal automatic scheduling transaction
   processing.

   When the Schedule-Reply header is set to the value "F", the server
   MUST NOT send a scheduling message as part of its normal automatic
   scheduling transaction processing.

   The Schedule-Reply request header is used by a client to indicate to
   a server whether or not an automatic scheduling transaction should
   occur when an Attendee deletes a scheduling object resource.  In
   particular it controls whether a reply scheduling message is sent to
   the Organizer as a result of the removal.  There are situations in
   which unsolicited scheduling messages need to be silently removed (or
   ignored) for security or privacy reasons.  This request header allows
   the scheduling object resource to be removed if such a need arises.

   All scheduling object resources MUST support the Schedule-Reply
   request header.

11.2.  Schedule-Tag Response Header

   The Schedule-Tag response header provides the current value of the
   CALDAV:schedule-tag property value.  The behavior of this response
   header is described in Section 8.

   All scheduling object resources MUST support the Schedule-Tag header.

      Schedule-Tag = "Schedule-Tag" ":" opaque-tag
      ; "opaque-tag" is defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


   Example:

      Schedule-Tag: "12ab34-cd56ef"

11.3.  If-Schedule-Tag-Match Request Header

   The If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header field is used with a method
   to make it conditional.  Clients can set this header to the value
   returned in the Schedule-Tag response header, or the CALDAV:schedule-
   tag property, of a scheduling object resource previously retrieved
   from the server to avoid overwriting "consequential" changes to the
   scheduling object resource.

   All scheduling object resources MUST support the If-Schedule-Tag-
   Match header.

      If-Schedule-Tag-Match = "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" ":" opaque-tag
      ; "opaque-tag" is defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616]

12.  Additional WebDAV Properties

   The CalDAV scheduling extension defines the following new WebDAV
   properties for use with CalDAV.

12.1.  CALDAV:schedule-calendar-transp Property

   Name:  schedule-calendar-transp

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Determines whether the calendar object resources in a
      calendar collection will affect the owner's freebusy.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected and SHOULD NOT be returned
      by a PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be kept during a MOVE
      operation, and SHOULD be copied and preserved in a COPY.

   Description:  This property SHOULD be defined on all calendar
      collections.  If present, it contains one of two XML elements that
      indicate whether the calendar object resources in the calendar
      collection should contribute to the owner's freebusy or not.  When
      the CALDAV:opaque element is used, all calendar object resources
      in the corresponding calendar collection MUST contribute to
      freebusy, assuming access privileges and other iCalendar
      properties allow it to.  When the CALDAV:transparent XML element
      is used, the calendar object resources in the corresponding
      calendar collection MUST NOT contribute to freebusy.

      If this property is not present on a calendar collection, then the
      default value CALDAV:opaque MUST be assumed.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-calendar-transp (opaque | transparent) >

      <!ELEMENT opaque EMPTY>
      <!-- Affect busy time searches -->

      <!ELEMENT transparent EMPTY>
      <!-- Invisible to busy time searches -->

   Example:

   <C:schedule-calendar-transp
        xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav">
     <C:opaque/>
   </C:schedule-calendar-transp>

12.2.  CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-default-calendar-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Specifies a default calendar for an Attendee where new
      scheduling object resources are created.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected in the case where a server
      does not support changing the default calendar, or does not
      support a default calendar.

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property is only defined on a scheduling
      Inbox collection which cannot be moved or copied.

   Description:  This property MAY be defined on a scheduling Inbox
      collection.  If present, it contains zero or one DAV:href XML
      elements.  When a DAV:href element is present, its value indicates
      a URL to a calendar collection that is used as the default
      calendar.  When no DAV:href element is present, it indicates that
      there is no default calendar.  In the absence of this property
      there is no default calendar.  When there is no default calendar
      the server is free to choose the calendar in which a new
      scheduling object resource is created.  See Section 6.3.

   Definition:

   <!ELEMENT schedule-default-calendar-URL (DAV:href?) >

   Example:

      <C:schedule-default-calendar-URL xmlns:D="DAV:"
           xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav">
        <D:href>/home/cyrus/calendars/work/</D:href>

12.3.  CALDAV:schedule-tag Property

   Name:  schedule-tag

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Indicates whether a scheduling object resource has had a
      "consequential" change made to it.

   Value:  opaque-tag (defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616])

   Protected:  This property MUST be protected as only the server can
      update the value.

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property is only defined on scheduling
      object resources.  It MUST be preserved when a scheduling object
      resource is copied or moved and the resulting resource is also a
      scheduling object resource.  If the source resource is not a
      scheduling object resource but the destination resource is, this
      property MUST be added to the destination resource.

   Description:  The CALDAV:schedule-tag property MUST be defined on all
      scheduling object resources.  This property is described in
      Section 8.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-tag (#PCDATA) >

   Example:

      <C:schedule-tag xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"
      >"12345-67890"</C:schedule-tag>

13.  Scheduling Access Control

13.1.  Scheduling Privileges

   CalDAV servers MUST support and adhere to the requirements of WebDAV
   ACL [RFC3744].  Furthermore, CalDAV servers that advertise support
   for the "calendar-auto-schedule" feature MUST also support the
   scheduling privileges defined in this section.

   All the scheduling privileges MUST be non-abstract and MUST appear in
   the DAV:supported-privilege-set property of scheduling Outbox and
   Inbox collections on which they are defined.

   The tables specified in Appendix A clarify which scheduling methods
   (e.g., "REQUEST", "REPLY", etc.) are controlled by each scheduling
   privilege defined in this section.

13.1.1.  Privileges on Scheduling Inbox Collections

   This section defines new WebDAV ACL privileges that are for use on
   scheduling Inbox collections.  These privileges determine whether
   delivery of scheduling messages from a calendar user is allowed by
   the calendar user who "owns" the scheduling Inbox collection.  This
   allows calendar users to choose which other calendar users can
   schedule with them.

   Note that when a scheduling message is delivered to a calendar user,
   in addition to a scheduling object resource being created in the
   calendar user's scheduling Inbox collection, a new scheduling object
   resource might be created or an existing one updated in a calendar
   belonging to the calendar user.  In that case, the ability to create
   or update the scheduling object resource in the calendar is
   controlled by the privileges assigned to the scheduling Inbox
   collection.

   The privileges defined in this section are ignored if applied to a
   resource other than a scheduling Inbox collection.

13.1.1.1.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver Privilege

   CALDAV:schedule-deliver is an aggregate privilege that contains all
   the scheduling privileges that control the processing and delivery of
   incoming scheduling messages, that is, CALDAV:schedule-deliver-invite
   and CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply, as well as freebusy requests
   targeted at the owner of the scheduling Inbox collection, that is,
   CALDAV:schedule-query-freebusy.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver EMPTY >

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


13.1.1.2.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver-invite Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-deliver-invite privilege controls the processing
   and delivery of scheduling messages coming from an Organizer.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver-invite EMPTY >

13.1.1.3.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply privilege controls the processing
   and delivery of scheduling messages coming from an Attendee.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver-reply EMPTY >

13.1.1.4.  CALDAV:schedule-query-freebusy Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-query-freebusy privilege controls freebusy
   requests targeted at the owner of the scheduling Inbox collection.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-query-freebusy EMPTY >

13.1.2.  Privileges on Scheduling Outbox Collections

   This section defines new WebDAV ACL privileges that are defined for
   use on scheduling Outbox collections.  These privileges determine
   which calendar users are allowed to send scheduling messages on
   behalf of the calendar user who "owns" the scheduling Outbox
   collection.  This allows calendar users to choose other calendar
   users who can act on their behalf to send schedule messages to other
   calendar users (e.g. assistants working on behalf of their boss).

   The privileges defined in this section are ignored if applied to a
   resource other than a scheduling Outbox collection.

13.1.2.1.  CALDAV:schedule-send Privilege

   CALDAV:schedule-send is an aggregate privilege that contains all the
   scheduling privileges that control the use of methods that will cause
   scheduling messages to be delivered to other users, that is, CALDAV:
   schedule-send-invite and CALDAV:schedule-send-reply, as well as
   freebusy requests to be targeted at other users, that is, CALDAV:
   schedule-send-freebusy.

13.1.2.2.  CALDAV:schedule-send-invite Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-invite privilege controls the sending of
   scheduling messages by Organizers.

   Users granted the DAV:bind privilege on a calendar collection, or
   DAV:write privilege on scheduling object resources, will also need
   the CALDAV:schedule-send-invite privilege granted on the scheduling
   Outbox collection of the owner of the calendar collection or
   scheduling object resource in order to be allowed to create, modify
   or delete scheduling object resources in a way that will trigger the
   CalDAV server to deliver organizer scheduling messages to other
   calendar users.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send-invite EMPTY >

13.1.2.3.  CALDAV:schedule-send-reply Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-reply privilege controls the sending of
   scheduling messages by Attendees.

   Users granted the DAV:bind privilege on a calendar collection, or
   DAV:write privilege on scheduling object resources, will also need
   the CALDAV:schedule-send-reply privilege granted on the scheduling
   Outbox collection of the owner of the calendar collection or
   scheduling object resource in order to be allowed to create, modify
   or delete scheduling object resources in a way that will trigger the
   CalDAV server to deliver attendee scheduling messages to other
   calendar users.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send-reply EMPTY >

13.1.2.4.  CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy privilege controls the use of the
   POST method to submit scheduling messages that specify the scheduling
   method "REQUEST" with a "VFREEBUSY" calendar component.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send-freebusy EMPTY >

13.1.3.  Aggregation of Scheduling Privileges

   Server implementations MUST aggregate the scheduling privileges as
   follows:

      DAV:all MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-send and CALDAV:schedule-
      deliver;




Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 59]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


      CALDAV:schedule-send MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-send-invite,
      CALDAV:schedule-send-reply, and CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy;

      CALDAV:schedule-deliver MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-deliver-
      invite, CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply, and CALDAV:schedule-query-
      freebusy.

   The following diagram illustrates how scheduling privileges are
   aggregated according to the above requirements.

         [DAV:all] (aggregate)
             |
             +-- [CALDAV:schedule-deliver] (aggregate)
             |      |

                    +-- [CALDAV:schedule-send-invite]
                    +-- [CALDAV:schedule-send-reply]
                    +-- [CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy]

13.2.  Additional Principal Properties

   This section defines new properties for WebDAV principal resources as
   defined in RFC3744 [RFC3744].  These properties are likely to be
   protected but the server MAY allow them to be written by appropriate
   users.

13.2.1.  CALDAV:schedule-inbox-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-inbox-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the URL of the scheduling Inbox collection owned
      by the associated principal resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  This property is needed for a client to determine where
      the scheduling Inbox collection of the current user is located so
      that processing of scheduling messages can occur.  If not present,
      then the associated calendar user is not enabled for reception of
      scheduling messages on the server.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-inbox-URL (DAV:href)>

13.2.2.  CALDAV:schedule-outbox-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-outbox-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the URL of the scheduling Outbox collection owned
      by the associated principal resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  This property is needed for a client to determine where
      the scheduling Outbox collection of the current user is located so
      that sending of scheduling messages can occur.  If not present,
      then the associated calendar user is not enabled for the sending
      of scheduling messages on the server.

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the calendar addresses of the associated principal
      resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  Support for this property is REQUIRED.  This property
      is needed to map calendar user addresses in iCalendar data to
      principal resources and their associated scheduling Inbox and
      Outbox collections.  In the event that a user has no well defined
      identifier for their calendar user address, the URI of their
      principal resource can be used.  This property SHOULD be
      searchable using the DAV:principal-property-search REPORT.  The
      DAV:principal-search-property-set REPORT SHOULD identify this
      property as such.  If not present, then the associated calendar
      user is not enabled for scheduling on the server.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT calendar-user-address-set (DAV:href*)>

   Value:  Same values allowed for the iCalendar "CUTYPE" property
      parameter defined in Section 3.2.3 of [RFC5545].

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  This property MAY be defined on principal resources to
      indicate the type of calendar user associated with this principal
      resource.  Its value is the same as the iCalendar "CUTYPE"
      property parameter that can be used on "ATTENDEE" properties.
      This property SHOULD be searchable using the DAV:principal-
      property-search REPORT.  The DAV:principal-search-property-set
      REPORT SHOULD identify this property as such.  If not present,
      then the associated calendar user is not enabled for scheduling on

15.  Security Considerations

   The process of scheduling involves the sending and receiving of
   scheduling messages.  As a result, the security problems related to
   messaging in general are relevant here.  In particular the
   authenticity of the scheduling messages needs to be verified.
   Servers and clients MUST use an HTTP connection protected with TLS as
   defined in [RFC2818] for all scheduling transactions.

15.1.  Verifying Scheduling Transactions

   When handling a scheduling transaction:

      Servers MUST verify that the principal associated with the DAV:
      owner of the calendar collection in which a scheduling object
      resource is being manipulated contains a CALDAV:schedule-outbox-
      URL property value.

      Servers MUST verify that the currently authenticated user has the
      CALDAV:schedule-send privilege, or a suitable sub-privilege
      aggregated under this privilege, on the scheduling Outbox
      collection of the DAV:owner of the calendar collection in which a
      scheduling object resource is being manipulated.

      Servers MUST only deliver scheduling messages to recipients when
      the CALDAV:schedule-deliver privilege, or a suitable sub-privilege
      aggregated under this privilege, is granted on the recipient's
      scheduling Inbox collection for the principal associated with the
      DAV:owner of the calendar collection in which a scheduling object
      resource is being manipulated.

      To prevent impersonation of calendar users, the server MUST verify
      that the "ORGANIZER" property in an organizer scheduling object
      resource matches one of the calendar user addresses of the DAV:
      owner of the calendar collection in which the resource is stored.

      To prevent spoofing of an existing scheduling object resource,
      servers MUST verify that the "UID" iCalendar property value in a
      new scheduling object resource does not match that of an existing
      scheduling object resource with a different "ORGANIZER" property
      value.

15.2.  Verifying Busy Time Information Requests

   When handling a POST request on a scheduling Outbox collection:






Daboo & Desruisseaux     Expires April 28, 2011                [Page 66]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions          October 2010


      Servers MUST verify that the principal associated with the
      calendar user address specified in the "ORGANIZER" property of the
      scheduling message data in the request contains a CALDAV:schedule-
      outbox-URL property value that matches the scheduling Outbox
      collection targeted by the request.

      Servers MUST verify that the currently authenticated user has the
      CALDAV:schedule-send privilege, or a sub-privilege aggregated
      under this privilege, on the scheduling Outbox collection targeted
      by the request.

      Servers MUST only return valid freebusy information for recipients
      when the CALDAV:schedule-deliver privilege, or a sub-privilege
      aggregated under this privilege, is granted on the recipient's
      scheduling Inbox collection for the principal associated with the
      DAV:owner of the scheduling Outbox collection targeted by the
      request.

15.3.  Privacy Issues

   As noted in Section 11.1, Attendees can use the Schedule-Reply
   request header with the value set to "F" to prevent notification to
   an Organizer that a scheduling object resource was deleted.  This
   allows Attendees to remove unwanted scheduling messages without any
   response to the Organizer.

Appendix A.  Scheduling Privileges Summary

A.1.  Scheduling Inbox Privileges

   The following tables specify which scheduling privileges grant the
   right to a calendar user to deliver a scheduling message to the
   scheduling Inbox collection of another calendar user.  The
   appropriate behavior depends on the calendar component type as well
   as the scheduling "METHOD" specified in the scheduling message.

      +-----------------------------+----------------------+

A.2.  Scheduling Outbox Privileges

   The following tables specify which scheduling privileges grant the
   right to a Calendar User to perform busy time information requests
   and to submit scheduling messages to other Calendar Users as the
   result of a scheduling transaction.  The appropriate behavior depends
   on the calendar component type as well as the scheduling "METHOD"
   specified in the scheduling message.

Appendix B.  Example Scheduling Transactions

   This section describes some example scheduling transactions that give
   a general idea of how scheduling is carried out between CalDAV
   clients and servers from the perspective of meeting Organizers and
   Attendees.

   In the following examples the requests and responses are incomplete
   and are only for illustrative purposes.  In particular, HTTP
   authentication headers and behaviors are not shown, even though they
   are required in normal operation.

B.1.  Example: Organizer Inviting Multiple Attendees

   In the following example, Cyrus invites Wilfredo, Bernard and Mike to
   a single instance event by simply creating a new scheduling object
   resource in one of his calendar collection by using the PUT method.

   Once the event creation has been completed, Cyrus's client will
   retrieve the event back from the server to get the schedule status of
   each Attendee.  In this example, the server reports that a scheduling
   message was delivered to Wilfredo, a scheduling message is still
   pending for Bernard, and the server was unable to deliver a
   scheduling message to Mike.

B.2.  Example: Attendee Receiving an Invitation

   In the following example, Wilfredo's client retrieves and deletes the
   new scheduling message that appeared in his scheduling Inbox
   collection after the server automatically processed it and created a
   new scheduling object resource in his default calendar collection.

B.8.  Example: Attendee Removing an Instance of a Recurring Event

   In the following example, Bernard removes from his calendar the third
   recurrence instance of a daily recurring event he's been invited to
   by Cyrus.  This is accomplished by the addition of an "EXDATE"
   property to the scheduling object resource stored by Bernard.

       is only relevant for Attendees.

   j.  Minor typos fixed.

C.5.  Changes in -05

   This draft has changed substantially since the -04 version.  The
   primary reason for this change was implementation experience from a
   number of vendors who implemented products based on the earlier
   drafts.  Experience showed that the client/server interaction was not
   reliable in keeping scheduling messages synchronized between
   organizer and attendees.  In addition the latency in updates due to
   clients being offline proved unacceptable to users.  These issues led
   to the redesign of this specification to support a server-based
   processing model that eliminates all the problems seen previously.
   Whilst this adds significant complexity to the server in that it
   needs to be a full blown iTIP processing agent, it does remove a lot
   of the same complexity from clients, opening up the possibility of

   supporting complex scheduling behaviors even with "thin" clients.

   In the judgement of the authors, we consider this new specification
   to be a substantial improvement over the old one and believe it
   represents a stronger protocol that will lead to better
   interoperability.
