Hi list,

  I haven't asked a question in a long time so here is one :)

  Is there any way I could publish my tasks to my iPhone ? The First
  thing that comes to mind is iCal/Google sync that way you can also
  read and write into org-mode, if only you could sync iCal with
  org-mode.

Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Cezar

Google calendars expose their contents in iCal format.  It is currently
possible to parse this content using `icalendar-import-file', which
transforms the contents of an ical file into diary entries, which could
themselves be included into the org-agenda.

I guess a real solution would need not only to parse the ical file, but
then to find the related headers inside of the users org files (probably
by searching the contents of org-agenda-files for headers with the same
ID) and then to update the header's contents with information from the
ical information to update the headers.

While updating general comments may be difficult to implement at least
updating properties of the entry like (location, time, etc...) should be
fairly easy to implement as icalendar.el can handle all of the ical
parsing.

Would this be related to generating headers with org-remember?  (I've
never used org-remember so I'm not sure how it works)

Cheers -- Eric

You can export Org stuff to iCalendar files[1], which can by
read by iCal[2] and in this way be uplinked to an iPhone.

However, this is one-way, there is no way to go back to
Org-mode from there.
