That is correct and some basic file support is already in the patches I
sent earlier, though replacing rules is not a part of it. However, it
does not solve the problem as you would still need access to the files
to work with the attributes and then change the files accordingly.

We offline-discussed this with Honza. There should be a new command
`ipa hbacrule-replace-accesstime rule_name --orig-time=icalstr1
--new-time=icalstr2`. As it would be derived from LDAPQuery, the
atomicity is kept. This may not be very nice for CLI but should work
well for WebUI. Both icalstr1 and icalstr2 need to be encoded as
newlines that appear so often in iCalendar strings would only make a
when removal succeeds but addition fails for some reason? The
operation is not atomic anymore.
Example of use:
ipa hbacrule-replace-accesstime rule_name
to add Tuesdays to the timespan defined by the rule.
I would really like to see a file input support here. It would be
simpler to operate in CLI as you would anyway create vCal files -- no
sane person is going to deal with these strings directly on the command
However, we've had yet another brainstorm with Petr^2, Martin^2 and
Honza. We really don't want the above so we came up with some ideas that
I'm listing below. Note that we also do not want more than one VEVENT
component in any of the time rules. So, the ideas:
1) Have the time rules as separate objects. This approach got most
support here. Adding Simo and Jakub to CC should they have any input
2) Have the time rules stored as strings in the multi-valued
accesstime attribute at each rule. These would be referenced by their
UID property of the VEVENT component of the iCalendar string (instead of
that pure hell above). As each of the strings can only contain one
VEVENT which has to define a UID, the only problem would be to keep the
uniqueness of UIDs consistent.
From my point of view, 1) seems rather better but your experience might
be different. Don't hesitate to share your opinions, please.
