Case 1

A meeting has been scheduled with various parties.  Either created by 
me or another party. I set a meeting reminder for say 10 minutes ahead 
of the meeting. The meeting notification appears on time and I dismiss 
it. An unwanted notification is sent to all parties on the meeting 
invite that I have changed something.

This happens either using the Horde online email/calendar program or 
using a remote client. ( I use Em Client for the remote client).

Since meeting reminders are for the individual and does not pertain at 
all to other parties to the meeting, there should be no notification 
sent in any case. Even more so for dismissing a notification.

Case 2

I have a calendar with a bunch of old and current events that I want
to copy from a personal calendar (A) to a calendar I am also using for
my business (B). I have another calendar (C) that I use at my employer's.

Calendar A - uses ActiveSync
Calendar B - uses Caldav (Horde/Kronolith)
Calendar C - uses Exchange

When I copy an event from C to A or A to C, no problem. Everything works.
However, when I copy from A to B or C to B, invitations erroneously
get sent out to everyone on the event.

I used Em Client (email client) to do the copies. Since server A and C 
do not send unwanted notifications it is not something that the email 
client is doing.

This caused a huge headache and was a little embarrassing because I
did not realize that this was happening until a couple people called
me about why I was resending old invitations.

I merely want to diarize these events in different calendars not
resend invitations.

Another issue encountered :
I receive a meeting invitation from another person outside my 
organization (call him Joe)
When I accept the invitation, the meeting goes to my calendar (fine), 
BUT the meeting organizer is immediately changed from Joe to me !  As 
a result, both Joe and I receive an email for the meeting as if I was 
organizing the meeting, creating a lot lot of confusion since Joe is 
now being invited by me to the meeting he set up in the first place...
Same issue found whether I use my client (Thunderbird) or the Horde 
Webmail interface
Very very frustrating

fixed in our master branch and will be available in Horde 6.
