Google calendar sync auto invites me

Hullo sailors, after returning to google sync (after not having repaired a UTF-8 problem in CardDAV), I am getting many self invitations to my own calendar items. On sailfish sync, my main calendar fills with duplicates of my calendar items, requesting to accept or to decline, but why should I accept a calendar item I myself created just minutes before? Deleting the attendee (myself) does not help, they keep coming back! It's pretty annoying. Any invitation feature on the google side I switched off, but the damn invitation copies keep returning.

Confirming this bug on F5122. All my existing events are turned into event invitations to myself after every calendar sync. This started with the update to Nurmonjoki

On my FS5122, it's not ALL events, it appears a random selection. Normally a sync will create auto-self-invites of some 5 - 50 events (and 50is no fun to delete plus they will return sooner or later)

Did myself create an event on Sailfish calendar, after that google web calendar seemed good. Triggered sync again on Sailfish -> event on web side changed color and clicking on it asks if I'm participating.

Suppose this is more or less what you are experiencing too? Created an internal bug report for this.

Quite likely coming from:

Sounds like it. Great to hear a bug has been created!

sailfish seems not to sync too often however, and it seems not ALWAYS to create auto self invites.

Would someone create rpm for this fix? "Organizer of the event shouldn't be in the attendees list. Fixes JB#43029 "

it appears to me with Sailfish 3.0 this does not happen anymore, so it could be fixed now.
