(Calendar :: General, defect)

With version 0.3a1 it is not. I was able to subscribe to the calendar if I did a global find/replace in it swapping 'TZID=US-Pacific' with 'VALUE=DATE' I do not know if Upcoming is doing the wrong thing, or Sunbird is. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Subscribe to any calendar from Upcoming.org (Try this one: http://upcoming.org/calendar/metro/793 ) Actual Results: Error number: 0x80004005 Description: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [calIIcalComponent.startTime]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: file:///Applications/Sunbird.app/Contents/MacOS/components/calItemBase.js :: anonymous :: line 449" data: no] Expected Results: Subscribed to the calendar without any errors. Bug did not seem to happen in versions of Sunbird prior to 0.3a1

The calendar file referenced here seems to be invalid. It declares a VTIMEZONE with TZID:America/Portland but then tries to use DTSTART;TZID=US-Pacific:20051201 RFC2445 specifies that if a TZID is to be used, it must be defined previously in a VTIMEZONE. Here, since the timezone used (US-Pacific) is never defined, we fail because of the undefined timezone. If I replace all instances of 'US-Pacific' with 'America/Portland', or vice versa, I can use the calendar without a problem.

Just a note, Upcoming.org has fixed this on their end, they now use TZID:US-Pacific for the VTIMEZONE value.
