I suspect this is related to the import ordering / race condition that you've noticed in the past. Is it still the case that the calendar server command line tools don't work in the freebsd CS port?

I had a VM with this partially set up, but I banged on it enough last week that I sort of forget where it's at. Currently, attempts to "pkg install py27-calendarserver-9.0" yield a CS installation that is pretty broken:

[cs@ ~]$ calendarserver_config -h
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/calendarserver_config", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3019, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3003, in _call_aside
    f(*args, **kwargs)

    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()

    return cls._build_from_requirements(__requires__)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 670, in _build_from_requirements
    dists = ws.resolve(reqs, Environment())
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 849, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'Twisted==15.4.0' distribution was not found and is required by CalendarServer

... and if I explicitly install Twisted 15.4.0, the CLI tools work at least. Try this:

[cs@ ~]$ calendarserver_config DefaultLogLevel

The above should be similar to what the server actually does to obtain config values. If I change DefaultLogLevel in /usr/local/etc/caldavd.plist, that change is reflected by calendarserver_config.

Also, can you share the command you use to actually start CS? I never invoke caldavd directly, and CS changes its process name after launch so you can't just look at it, and newproc.d on OS X will show you processes names and launch args, but not ALL of the args... All my attempts seem to result in:
	/usr/local/bin/twistd: Unknown command: caldav
... but I'm surely doing it wrong.


What I want to try is getting CS to run in the 'developer mode' from a git checkout, using the bin/run script. In that state, the location and import order of all the modules should be fairly predictable, and I suspect that might be enough to get the config to load as expected. But, I still have to wade through a bunch of broken stuff to get ./bin/develop to run cleanly. There are some aspects of the ./bin/develop script (and the scripts it sources) that just don't work very well on BSD.
