Hi Patryk,

> Rahul, what is the status of the 5.0 package? Are you working on it?

I also wanted to check the status etc the other day, but never got 
around to finnish the email.
I wanted to pick it up again but I was too busy.

The certificate is just expired, and I have not got around to renew it.
You can still download the packages ? I did not really care to test.

(I used a proper startssl certificate as backend for gnupg over 
smartcard http://article.tree.se/server/identity and I did not want to 
open that can of worms again)

But if there are no news from Rahul or someone else I will give
the new calendarserver a go again (but for sid).

Could it be the version ?
This is a OLD table I made for calendarserver back in Feb 2012 (2 years ago)
The debian package to be installed is 'python-zope.interface' if that 
did not change ?

I think 4.2 with Postgres backend is not too far behind 5.x ?
You could at least just download the debs on https://tree.se/debian/
and install them and play around a bit. setting up the caldavd.plist for 
your needs etc.
IF the devs dissagree, please let me know.

I have it at least running but not in use.

Or you have to wait and hope I get some time to get to it.
I have 2 kids (3 & 6), work, plus a TON of other projects, that have 
produced more feedback than the calendarserver :)

I am happy for any colaboration.. :)

Depending on your background, if you really know what you are doing you 
can run from svn, otherwise I would suggest using the debs.

BUT disclaimer, before you put real data in the calendarserver, be aware 
that I am not a debian developer, I just do it for fun, and
I just packaged the calendarserver so far. I did not try to do
migrations between versions, although I hope that the calendarserver
developers take care of that without relying too much on the packager
