    In Evolution/iCal it is possible to set a start date of a memo. In Kolab there is no start date field for notes.
    The iCal field DTSTART should be preserved in a hidden kolab field for the note type. Right now it gets lost.

    The DTSTART field is now saved as a hidden kontact for the note type.

    Kontact dismisses all non-Kontact fields even on the root level for the
    type note. So all hidden fields will be gone if the note is edited in
    Kontact. This affects the organizer, start date and recipient list of a
    note.

    It does not work. The value in the field Start date is still "None".

    The converter lib is handling the note start date by storing the field
    DTSTART in the hidden kolab XML field "x-kolabconv-store"
    (also the fields ORGANIZER and X-EVOLUTION-RECIPIENTS).
    If the note is changed in Kontact, the XML field "x-kolabconv-store" is
    dismissed by Kontact. This is wrong by the Kolab specification [1]: "If a
    client sees a tag it does not understand, this tag must be preserved and
    saved back to the file"

    kolab test files for the contact/event/task/note types with custom tags and the same files after editing a field in kontact
