Bug#866794: gnome-calendar: No CalDAV support?

Package: gnome-calendar
Version: 3.22.4-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I've just upgraded from jessie to stretch, and while I note the pleasing UI of
the new calendar which replaces evolution, I cannot find a means of adding
CalDAV calendars to it: there's a huge list of options, but nothing that seems
to support CalDAV, which I used successfully on jessie.

Currently if I try to add a calendar, it asks me to add an account, but the
list of account types doesn't seem to include anything that would permit use of
a CalDAV URL.  I can't see any mention of DAV in the release notes either for
this or for stretch itself.

Any suggestions please?
