I've discovered a roundabout way of doing this.
I run the Darwin Calendar Server on my main box and use that as Evolution's
default calendar. Lightning connects to DCS using the caldav option.
Evolution and Lightning have different ways of interpreting repeating events
with exceptions, and there may be other quirks as well.
Can you elaborate on that? Which events are handled differently?
Regarding CalDAV, I now (finally) have permission to make SyncEvolution
backends for that available. I'm writing a README as we speak and will
push the code once that's done. More about that in a separate email.
I'm mentioning it in this context because synchronization could be
- run Darwin Calendar Server
- connect Lightning to it
- synchronize N900<->Calendar Server with SyncEvolution
