Re: Clarification for Free/Busy
First- let me apologize for the poor formatting of my table - I'll have to
come up with a better way to reference information best suited to a table.
Second - to clarify one thing, the "not there" column means that the STATUS
property of the VEVENT is not present, I was trying to provide for the case
where we could not determine the status from the property.
Third - since the Free/Busy query is directed toward one explicit calendar
UID, I'm not sure we need to worry about attendee PARTSTAT - aren't we
really querying the free/busy times on that VCALENDAR/VAGENDA ?
Fourth- I'm willing to accept that OPAQUE+CONFIRMED = BUSY instead of
BUSY-UNAVAILABLE as Dan Winship stated, but then where do BUSY-UNAVAILABLE
statuses come from - other parts of a CUA that "know" my normal working
hours? In my use of my calendaring software at work, I have to schedule my
vacation time on my calendar. I don't know how I'd indicate that to my
software to return that as BUSY-UNAVAILABLE. Not saying it can't be
done; I'm just unclear about where it comes from.
Fifth- if an attendee has declined an invitation then the time on their
calendar should be FREE if (and only if) there is no other VEVENT in that
Sixth- this is for automated Free/Busy replies to a query, not to
publishing free/busy time since that publishing effort could be done by any
number of things.
