[Calypso] migration report from radicale

hello calypso users,
just having finished my migration from radicale to calypso, here's what
i'd like to share:
* i had already kept backups of the vcf and ics files (as downloaded by
cadaver) versioned in git. when i tried to use that tree directly
(instead of creating an empty git repo and uploading the individual
files using a groupware client), i had to set the X-CALYPSO-NAME
fields in the files to something reasonable; otherwise, they might
have been filled with the full URLs some clients chose to assign to
the UID field (which is the fallback for X-CALYPSO-NAME).
things went wrong when clients tried to download
files. i assume those problems only occur when one uses old files
directly instead of uploading them.
* evolution just works fine
* android's carddavsync (nonfree) works fine too after doing the
X-CALYPSO-NAME thing mentioned above
* the android client aCal does not work, because it interprets metadata
sent back from the server and decides that the calendar is an address
* be careful when migrating config files -- the look&feel is the same,
but many fields changed their names (auth/acl, storage).
so far, things work smoothly in my small 3-user 2000-entry 5-client
thanks for gitifying groupware :-)
