Hello Ricardo,

Horde/IMP allow the user to edit their own IMAP ACLs. Unfortunately I do not know of any WebDAV client which users can
utilize to edit their own ACLs.  For WebDAV editing ACLs is one way to share (a caldav) collection.

Why is there a plan to kill the ability of users to set their own ACLs?
