Dear Jelmer,
thx for the hints. I installed calypso without the prefix, cos of
trouble with the python path. Now, calypso is installed
in /usr/local/bin. When I launch calypos as user, everything works fine.
When I launch calypso as root, it does not work. It fowllows an example
output with a client trying to add a contact.

root at debian:/home/stefan# calypso

HTTP/1.1" 207 -

Calypso behaves in the same way, when i try to launch it using the init
script from git.

root at debian:/etc/init.d# calypso start
192.168.178.23 - - [23/Dec/2015 14:48:40] "PROPFIND /private/test/

I reckon something is wrong in my setup, when calypso is launched as
root. I will try to run calypso in an autonomous way as user. Do you
have any ideas on this?

Cheers,
Stefan
