Hi Cyrus,

I had tried this. But the command was failing. I was under the 
assumption that upgrade would happen automatically, so did bother to 
look into why this command was failing. However, a more senior Debian 
developer has helped me resolve this issue. Apparently, this command 
should be run as user "caldavd" and then it worked. He also pointed out 
that the accounts.xml file format for calendarserver 5.x and 7.x differ. 
Is there any script which will automatically convert accounts.xml file 
to the new format?
