Even with D461 applied, invitations created by Outlook that contain both participants and resources still fail to update the resource's calendar: The resource reservation ist sent with CUTYPE=RESOURCE;ROLE=NON-PARTICIPANT;RSVP=TRUE. Wallace seems to mis-interprets the ROLE=NON-PARTICIPANT as being part of a delegated resource:

# ignore updates and cancellations to resource collections who already delegated the event
if len(receiving_attendee.get_delegated_to()) > 0 or receiving_attendee.get_role() == kolabformat.NonParticipant:

When delegating a resource, Wallace sets both the role and rsvp state:

# set delegator to NON-PARTICIPANT and RSVP=FALSE
delegator = itip_event['xml'].get_attendee_by_email(original_resource['mail'])

We can take advantage of that and test on both role and rsvp state:

if len(receiving_attendee.get_delegated_to()) > 0 or (receiving_attendee.get_role() == kolabformat.NonParticipant and not receiving_attendee.get_rsvp()):
Test Plan

Use Outlook 2016 to send an invitation to real participants and add a resource reservation. The iTip will contain both as attendee:

Is there any action I can take to aid in getting this patch (and others) into Kolab?
