Bug ID #: 10866039
Bug Title: BDAY for contacts one day offset
<GMT15-Feb-2012 03:08:28GMT> Ingo Ratsdorf:
Summary: Birthday for contacts is one day offset in other 3rd party apps other
than the iOS Contacts app and is synched incorrectly over CardDAV

Steps to Reproduce: Enter birthday in iPhone contacs app for any contacts.
Open any other contact application and see the birthday there, ie birthday
reminders or sync via CardDAV.

Expected Results: Birthday to be shown as entered.

Actual Results: Birthday a day offset in any 3rd party app, in 3rd party
birthday reminders and also synched as a day later via cardDAV.



Sent by eGroupware to iPhone via CardDAV:

PRODID:-//EGroupware//NONSGML EGroupware Addressbook 1.8//EN

changed some NOTES text and iPhone sends it again to eGroupware:

PRODID:-//EGroupware//NONSGML EGroupware Addressbook 1.8//EN

When the card was submitted, the iPhone still showed 200-09-02 for birthday
and once it saved it and synced it back, Birthday was on 2001-09-03! (Of
course, because that's what it sent)

But why does the iPhone sends the birthday as 2001-09-03???????

And this is repetitive. So EVERY TIME I edit an address on the iPhone, the
birthday shifts another day once it has synched via CardDAV.

I could only imagine that this is a TZ problem and that the iPhone stores the
birthday with a TZ internally but skips it when saving back. I am in
Auckland/NZ, GMT+13.

Funny enough that does not happen when I use activeSync.
