Hi, 

I am maintaining my calendar in gcal and org.

I have been switching back and forth between Eric's awk script and a
python script posted on this list recently.  The later contains some
bugs.  

However, I experience two issues with Eric's script.

* Repeated events

For repeated events only the first occurrence seems to translated.  Here
is an example:

┏━━━
┃ BEGIN:VEVENT
┃ DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20111012T150000
┃ DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20111012T170000
┃ RRULE:FREQ=WEEKLY;COUNT=9;BYDAY=WE
┃ DTSTAMP:20111008T014417Z
┃ UID:dihhjpn9hrnct6fj00epk9bnls@google.com
┃ CREATED:20111007T222923Z
┃ DESCRIPTION:
┃ LAST-MODIFIED:20111007T222923Z
┃ LOCATION:
┃ SEQUENCE:0
┃ STATUS:CONFIRMED
┃ SUMMARY:Micro Class
┃ TRANSP:OPAQUE
┃ END:VEVENT
┗━━━

Note line 4. It reads that the event should be repeated weekly nine
times.  It does not seem to be repeated in the org-file generated by
ical2org.  Does other experience this as well?

* All day events. 

For me all day events spans two days and are further given a time.

Here is an example:

┏━━━
┃ BEGIN:VEVENT
┃ DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20111012
┃ DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20111013
┃ UID:5oshl25lnn7da5mmog9bbemads@google.com
┃ CREATED:20111007T214920Z
┃ DESCRIPTION:
┃ LAST-MODIFIED:20111007T214920Z
┃ LOCATION:
┃ SEQUENCE:0
┃ STATUS:CONFIRMED
┃ SUMMARY:exam\, math
┃ TRANSP:TRANSPARENT
┃ END:VEVENT
┗━━━

Which is translated to 

*  exam, math
  <2011-10-12 Wed 00:00>--<2011-10-13 Thu 00:00>

I don't know why Google writes time as

┏━━━
┃ DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20111012
┃ DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20111013
┗━━━

but the event is on 20111012 only and it might be more correct to
translate it to 

*  exam, math
  <2011-10-12 Wed>

which would (correctly) be interpreted as an all-day event in
org-agenda. 

Does anyone else experience this all-day issue?

Thanks,
Rasmus

Yes, repeated events are not supported in the code.  Probably trivial to
add but I'm swamped with a new academic term which started last week so
it'll be a while before I get to this.  I'll add it to my (ever growing)
TODO list in any case.  Thanks for a clear example.

I'm not sure I tested all day events (I don't tend to use them,
preferring to say 9am-5pm, say) but I can see the usefulness of
these.  I'll add this to my TODO list as well!

Thanks for the feedback!
