[CalendarServer-users] Organizer cannot schedule error

You only need to ‘schedule’ (i.e. ‘have attendees’) when there are other principals involved aside from the organizer. An event with no attendees is considered ‘non-scheduled’, although this language is a little weird considering that it’s still on your calendar, can still have alarms attached to it, etc. Think of ‘scheduled’ events as events that involve multiple principals.

Section 3.2.1 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6638#section-3.2.1> of rfc 6638 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6638> says:

   The "Organizer" of a calendar component can also be an "Attendee" of
   that calendar component.  In such cases, the server MUST NOT send a
   scheduling message to the "Attendee" that matches the "Organizer".

I’m not seeing a precondition <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6638#section-3.2.4> specifically for the case that you are attempting, but the implication from the above seems clear that this is a weird thing to do, so don’t do that :)
