xDAV and shared namespaces

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes, I'm willing to test it and if needed I 
can also apply patches (I build Cyrus from sources).


What does this command is supposed to do and under what user should I 
execute it (I mean imtest -a <user>)? I tried to run it under admin user 
(it creates a "shared" folder at the root hierarchy) and under a normal 
user that already has a shared folder (in this case the folder is 
created under the user hierarchy), but in both cases the folder stays 
empty (with only cyrus.header and cyrus.index inside) and is not visible 
under a WebDAV client. Am I missing something?

xDAV hasn't had much development or testing in the shared namespace and 
there isn't any tooling to create such mailboxes.

If you wanted to do some testing, you'd have to create the mailboxes by 
hand and set the mailbox type accordingly.  To do so, you can connect to 
the server as an admin using imtest and enter the following command:


to create a WebDAV collection.  Or set the TYPE to CALENDAR or ADDRESSBOOK
