Package: evolution
Version: 3.12.7-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Currently, Evolution suffers from a bug whereby CalDAV calendars can be 
incorrectly marked as read-only, thus rendering them pretty much useless
for anyone who wants to add or modify events on a shared event.

This has been fixed upstream (bug #721712)  The actual fix can be
found at https://git.gnome.org/browse/evolution-data-server/commit/?id=8b2746f

Unfortunately, that fix has not been backported to jessie.

This is a serious problem for anyone who wants to use CalDAV on their
GNOME desktop with Jessie!

Thanks in advance!
