[18:30] <mschroeder> Hi Andreas
[18:30] <Andreas> Hi Martin
[18:31] <Andreas> What are the agenda topics today? 
[18:33] <mschroeder> Next weeks testday.
[18:33] <Andreas> good point :-)
[18:34] <mschroeder> I know. ;)
[18:35] <Andreas> I hope I can spend some time to write new test cases.
[18:36] <Andreas> Testcases for the 'new' context menus and the'switch calendar off' feature - for example.
[18:37] <mschroeder> I don't think we have many new features to test explicitly
[18:38] <mschroeder> Who will write the announcement?
[18:39] <Andreas> That is true. I think regression testing is a big point.
[18:39] <mschroeder> I can't promise anything.
[18:40] <Andreas> May be I can do it.
[18:41] * thetux has joined #calendar-qa
[18:41] <thetux> hi
[18:42] <mschroeder> Hi Lars
[18:42] <Andreas> hi thetux
[18:42] <mschroeder> Andreas: You can send it to me, and I'll push it to the blog.
[18:43] <thetux> I like the style how he new blog entries are written. Really very nice :-)
[18:44] <Andreas> mschroeder: Okay, thats fine.
[18:44] <Andreas> I will try to write the blog text tomorrow.
[18:45] <mschroeder> thetux: everybody is invited to write... so you can do a blog post about using Tb+Lightning in a company with hundreds of computers ;)
[18:47] <mschroeder> Andreas: great
[18:48] <Fallen> I have a blog post too, I just sent it to sipaq recently :-)
[18:48] <thetux> mschroeder: will think about it, sounds funny :)
[18:49] * mschroeder has two started but none finished. :(
[18:49] <thetux> mschroeder: what are the topics?
[18:54] <Andreas> Thetux: The next testdays
[18:54] <mschroeder> thetux: all are qa centric: a request for email feedback to determine 'hotspots' in our products, general qa planning, and using an iCalendar fuzzing script for testing iCalendar parser automatically
[18:57] <mschroeder> anything else we should or want discuss?
[18:58] <MechtiIde>  I need help to configure Thunderbird/Lightning so that I can use the calendar(s) with different user and from different maschines
[18:59] <MechtiIde>  How can I do it?
[19:00] <mschroeder> MechtiIde: You want to use some kind of calendar server.
[19:00] <MechtiIde> yes
[19:00] <mschroeder> So, do you already have one?
[19:01] <MechtiIde> I want to know which you suggest
[19:01] <MechtiIde> for using with lightning
[19:01] <mschroeder> I don't use Lightning in such an environment.
[19:01] <MechtiIde> because I heard webdav has problems with filelocking
[19:01] <mschroeder> thetux^^
[19:02] <MechtiIde> I want to know which the devlopers of lightning suggest
[19:02] <thetux> we use webdav, 99% of the time it works. If you are unlucky and be part of the 1%, you better have a backup of the files ;)
[19:03] <mschroeder> I would suggest a server supporting CalDAV.
[19:04] <MechtiIde> thetux, also filelocking?
[19:04] <MechtiIde> mschroeder, which server support CalDav  and do you have a link to a HowTo to configure it
[19:05] <thetux> yeah, CalDAV should be better. Our choice for webdav had historic reasons, since we already had webdav in use.
[19:07] <mschroeder> MechtiIde: Zimbra 5, Kerio Mailserver, Apple's Darwin Calendar Server, Oracle Calendar, Scalix, Bedework, Cosmo, DAViCal
[19:07] <mschroeder> I only tested some of them, I'm no real user, so I also don't know how to configure them.
[19:08] <mschroeder> MechtiIde: In Lightning you can selecet CalDAV when subscribing to a calendar.
[19:08] <MechtiIde> How can I do it?
[19:08] <MechtiIde> in the start-dialog?
[19:09] <thetux> Zimbra is a pain... I wouldn't choose it
[19:10] <mschroeder> MechtiIde: New > Calendar > On the network > CalDAV
[19:10] <MechtiIde> ok
[19:11] <mschroeder> btw That's the end of the QA chat. Have a nice day/evening. :)
[19:12] <Andreas> mschroeder: okay, bye!
