Hi Georg,

i am not sure if i understood this concept. Bernhard described it like this:

I think this would even be more complicated. The event must be related 
to a specific user and must track its timezone.
Or does this event should happen always at the same local time for 
everybody no matter in which time zone this person is?
If it is like this it would not be useful for an event which is shared, 
because then everybody would come to a different time to that meeting if 
the people are in different time zones.
