Summary0002716: Wrong time/timezone for Calendar Invite when accepted on iPhone, OK when accepted on Thunderbird
Description

User was invited to an event from someone (running Exchange) on the West Coast (PST).

The external organizer set the event time to 8:00am PST.

She accepted the event on her iPhone 5 (running iOS 7.1).

The event was added to her calendar, but shows in both their iPhone and Thunderbird+Integrator as being scheduled for 8:00am EST, when it should show 11:00am EST.

Timezone is set correctly in iPhone, Thunderbird and SOGo, and interestingly the event also displays incorrectly in the SOGo web UI, but it shows as scheduled for 4:00am (different from the iPhone or Thunderbird).

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Have organizer send event invitation from Exchange system (not sure what version yet) based in West Coast/PST timezone to Participant in EST timezone.

  2. Accept invitation on iPhone

  3. Note that the time the event shows scheduled for on the iPhone (and in Thunderbird+Integrator) is the wrong time (shows as the same time as the organizer, but in the participants timezone, which is wrong).

Additional Information

Here is the Event Source for an event that was accepted on her iPhone that displays the incorrect time:

I'm opening a new bug for this, since my initial report/assessment was incorrect, and there is no way to edit the Summary or Description of bugs in this bug system after it has been created (would still really like to know why this is).

Would someone please close bug 0002707 and link it to this one?

In the prio bug, Christian noted from the Event Source:

"This event does not contain a timezone at all!!!

Start and End are not in GMT/UTC either (mizzing 'Z'-character at the end):
DTSTART:20140411T140000
DTEND:20140411T143000

SOGo seems to read these as GMT/UTC.
Shouldn't it read them as "local" time, which would be EST here?
(This would still be wrong, but seems to be more logical, at least for me.)

But more important, who stripped the timezone in such a crappy way?"

to shich Ludovic responded:

"SOGo will read them as local time, not UTC.

It would read them as UTC if a Z was ending the date-time."

So, since the Event is correctly handled by Thunderbird+Integrator, the timezone must be there initially, so the bug obviously is in the CalDAV interaction between iPhone/iOS and SOGo backend.

Now the only question is, is the bug in iOS or SOGo? If iOS, is there anything that can be done to work around it in SOGo? If not, do you guys have any relationship(s) with Apple Devs for reporting the problem?

Seems http://www.sogo.nu/bugs/view.php?id=2865 is duplicate of this bug. Much info has been given there, please, look at it.

I've attached a patch that partly fixes the issue (using Lightning logic) - after applying, event pop-ups and event-edition dialogs show correct time, excepting that local-time is server local-time, not user local-time (as it should be). To use user's local time something like this could be used:

#import <NGObjWeb/WOContext+SoObjects.h>
#import <SOGo/SOGoUserDefaults.h>
WOContext context;
SOGoUserDefaults
ud;
tz = [NSTimeZone timeZoneWithName: [[[context activeUser] userDefaults] timeZoneName]];

But this gives me errors like:
EXCEPTION: <NSException: 0x7fade982b608> NAME:NSInvalidArgumentException REASON:iCalDateTime(instance) does not recognize activeUser INFO:(null)

Anyway, this is only a partial fix, as day-week-month table view still uses original SOGo logic. Developers, please, tell me, where can I find a place in the code to change the table view?
