You are right. I forgot that radicale is just fudging proper CalDAV semantics

The large VTIMEZONE definitions in the log look exactly like the ones generated
by the modified libical. If Radicale does not generate them, then it must have
received them from a client (perhaps even SyncEvolution).

Current SyncEvolution should send the smaller VTIMEZONEs with just one entry
for summer time and one for winter time.

Removing them entirely might lead to missing time zone information in the items
sent to clients. It might not matter in practice because clients (including
SyncEvolution) often look at the TZID first to match it with an existing local

That's worth discussing with Radicale devs. I don't know how they currently
decide which VTIMEZONEs need to be inserted into the individual items. If they
include *all* of them, then it's not surprising that there is significant
overhead once a calendar contains several different time zone definitions.
