Exceptions of recurring events are not handled by export to i
When exporting a storage calendar to iCalendar format recurring events loose any exceptions. Steps to reproduce: 1. create daily recurring event (5 times) 2. drag first occurrence one week ahead 3. export whole calendar, choose iCalendar format Result: no exceptions in ics file. After importing the data again, the exeptions are not shown. found using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20061002 Sunbird/0.3
This is in conflict with "Export should serialize all data into the file" from the release status file. Requesting blocking0.3
I can reproduce this on Lightning 0.3rc 1 (2006100209), Thunderbird 1.5.7 (20060909), on Mac PPC OSX 10.4
losing data on export is bad.
Flags: blocking0.3? → blocking0.3+
Copied the code from the ics provider. One day, we will share this code...

(In reply to comment #7) > well, can not verify -> REOPEN > result: error - 1 item failed to import This bug is about export. Does the export worked as expected after this fix? If you see an error during import this is a complete different problem and I think you should file a new bug.
(In reply to comment #9) > This bug is about export. Does the export worked as expected after this fix? That's the problem. I'm not able to verify if exception was exported properly so I exported calendar and wanted to import to check if is is the same > If you see an error during import this is a complete different problem and I > think you should file a new bug. Yes, error is displayed when I try to import Ok, if you think that exported data looks good, please close it, mark as fixed (because bug is fixed) and let me open new issue
Using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a2pre) Gecko/20061219 Calendar/0.4a1: I created repeating event, deleted one occurrence and exported to iCalendar file. I checked the file and the EXDATE elements are there. -> Setting back to FIXED. Damian, please file a new bug on the import issue. (Note: If you just open your exported file as new calendar it works ok)
