[CalendarServer-users] Getting a stable version of Calendar Server?

OK.  I tracked this down to a permissions issue on /var/run/caldavd  
and the files calendaruserproxy.sqlite & resourceinfo.sqlite.  By  
adding group rw permissions to this directory and these files the  
following error no longer occurs and all seems to be working.  I have  
no idea what security risk this presents as I currently don't  
understand the security model of CalendarServer so I don't know if  
this is a legitimate fix or not.

Any input appreciated.


Further Information:  The log entry when this fails is

Now that snow leopard has shipped can we ask questions?  I have 2.3  
running on a 10.5.8 client and its been working fine and still is but  
iCal on my new snow leopard install now reports the following error  
when connecting and will not connect.

The server responded with
“HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error”
to operation CalDAVAccountRefreshQueueableOperation.

Any help appreciated.
