Very good question Samer. I would dare to say it is because nobody has asked in the open yet. Thanks for bringing it up (we have talked about this a couple of times in Heidelberg behind closed doors).

Clearly a community toolkit should have a calendar that can be administered by the community (if the admin wants them to be able to).

On a side note... according to a professor I met recently this is a function that Blackboard used to have in an earlier version that professors really liked and has since been changed (maybe due to an architecture overhaul?).

Why? Because calendar is very hackerish.

In fact calendar 4-6 implements a "trust-your-user-to-not-change-the-url" form of security - hence it doesn:t really matter what you do on your permissons page.

Thanks to Lars calendar is now using permissions properly. Have a look at this commit

And for inspiration please look at this thread

This could be solved properly via a site-wide parameter (Create_Calendar_With_Broken_Security_Inheritance_p) and a toggle to switch that. Sounds good?
