How to set-up a CalDAV Google Calendar in Mozilla Calendar / Lightning

I've just figured this out and am posting here in hope it's useful:

Google Calendar now supports "CalDAV", a presumably better standard
for remotely shared and writable data (no more need for the "Provider 
for Google Calendar" add-on to have write access).

To set up your calendars in Lightning:

1. Go to your online Google Calendar, select "Settings / Calendars / 
Share This Calendar", then enter the Google Mail e-mail address of the 
person you want to share your calendar with (I think they must also have 
a Google Calendar account).

2. Create a new "network" calendar in Mozilla Calendar, select "CalDAV", 
Location = https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/CALENDAR-ID/events
(the ID includes the @gmail.com). Google's Calendar ID is shown here: 
http://www.google.com/calendar/render then: Settings / Calendars / click 
on the calendar's name / scroll down to "Calendar Address". (NB: When a 
user has multiple shared Google calendars, Google will assign each 
calendar a new "Calendar ID". The calendar ID of the *first* calendar 
you create is always YourGMailName@gmail.com).

3. When signing-in to any shared calendar from Mozilla calendar, use 
YOUR Google username. In the dialog, use your FULL Google e-mail address 
(incl. @...).

4. If you don't have write access to the shared calendar (from step 1), 
go to the "Properties" of the Mozilla Calendar (by double-clicking on 
the calendar) and select "Read Only".

NOTE: If you are referring to an account created in Germany, you must 
use @GoogleMail.com and not @GMail.com.

Wouldn't this be better posted to news:mozilla.support.calendar ??? 
(Cross posted: forgive me!)

Also, aside from not needing Provider for Google Calendar, what are the 
advantages of using a CalDAV calendar? Is it faster? More reliable? Does 
it now finally support tasks?

Google Calendar now supports CalDAV
Google Calendar now supports CalDAV! Great news!? - What are the consequences of this for Mozilla Calendar? Better? How? It seems at least we don't need the "Provider for Google Calendar" add-on anymore!? - Google's CalDAV "Location" includes the user's e-mail address (actually, the "Calendar ID") - including the "@" symbol. Can Mozilla Calendar handle this special symbol? (in my simple tests it does, but there might be other scenarios) - It would be useful to be able to set the "Read Only" check-box while creat...

If "Provider for Google Calendar" is based on Google (Calendar) sync, then it is necessary to write a statement on its home page to tell people that the addon will not work. On 17.12...
