Merci bien Francois,

I will copy your rights for the owner, but I could not find the general
syntax of this file.
Can I do something like

>         user: User1,User2,User3
>         collection: ^.*/OurCalendar.ics
>         permission: rw

to give the users 1..3 the rights to just the calendar OurCalendar.ics?

This is an intermediate solution I can do, but to have radicale on a
level where uneducated users can define access rights, I think this
feature has to be added into plinth. Or does Guhgel-Calendar not have
such an access control?
