Hi, I rethought my thoughts about this and I think I follow your idea more closely now. If I try to rephrase it, then it might be: On the server side, add new e_data_cal_notify_free_busy_data (..., const GSList *ecalcomps); which invokes a signal on the D-Bus connection about (partial) result for a free/busy request (note it doesn't provide user separately). This signal will be valid only while a get_free_busy request is running. Calling e_data_cal_notify_free_busy_data() out of these functions will not fail, but the ECalClient consumer may not expect that being done. With this limitation we'll have a possibility to cancel pending request, if needed. The e_data_cal_respond_get_free_busy() will have no return values. On the client side, the 'finish' function will be also void and any information about free-busy will be available exclusively in a "free-busy-received" signal, which will have a parameter GSList *ecalcomps. I hope we are on the same line now. If you agree, then I'll make a change in this way.
