Patch to handle WeekOfMonth (4.97 KB, patch)

Description Graham Cobb 2014-11-10 10:41:52 UTC
See also bug #70693

Activesyncd is losing the "nth" attribute for monthly repeating BYDAY events.

The following EAS data:

            <Recurrence xmlns="Calendar:">

is turned into the following RRULE:


which should be:


This is obviously related to bug #70693.  Until I investigate further, I don't know if this is caused by the same underlying problem as that bug, is a deliberate attempt to avoid triggering that bug or is a separate bug.  Even if this is separate, bug #70693 may still prevent the corrected event from being synchronised.

As events with recurrence like "first Monday of the month" are very common, it would be nice to fix this.

Patch to handle WeekOfMonth

This patch makes activesyncd handle the EAS <WeekOfMonth> tag and produce the correct RRULE.  Checked using logging.

Of course, bug #70693 still means that the recurrence gets corrupted later, but at least this should work when that bug is fixed.
