Suggested implementation: 
https://github.com/prigaux/horde/commit/608ce5958134b05de2f008ed59d412190e0104bf

Only 2 choices proposed: remote attendees, notify attendees. Maybe 
adding "keep attendees but no notifications" (though i don't see why 
we would propose not notifying...)

When I copy an event with attendees from my colleagues calendar every 
attendee receives a notification because of a new / modified event. 
This is a bit annoying (not as much for me as for the other 
attendees). It is not possible to "uncheck" that the attendees are to 
be notified.

One of the original  attendees sent a mail to me (from Outlook I 
guess) which said that I wanted to notify him about the event. At 
http://picpaste.com/event-4gL9jTtr.png I uploaded a screenshot from 
the (Outlook) mail from the attendee. Unfortunately it's in German. 
(Literally?) translated the bold line says: "Jens Gr├╝ntjes wants to 
call your attention to 'Sitzung am ?'" I don't know how Outlook makes 
a difference between new events and modified events, but it might be a 
new event.

Here an excerpt from the kronolith mailing list (2015-11-16 and 2015-11-17):

mrubinsk:  It sounds like what you are trying to do is accept/add this 
event on your own calendar as if you were one of the original 
attendees, but without actually being one.
jens: Yes, that's true. But this also holds if I am an original 
attendee and make a copy of an event and put that into a shared 
calendar.

mrubinsk: That being said, I could see adding an extra step when the 
event being copied still contains attendees - to verify that you 
really want to copy the event with the attendees or not.
jens: Yes, that would be really helpful. Maybe something like the 
question that shows up when I modify an event with attendees. 
Kronolith asks if I want to send the modifications to all attendees 
after submitting the modifications.
