These are externally raised issues about hCalendar with broadly varying degrees of merit. Thus some issues are REJECTED for a number of obvious reasons (but still documented here in case they are re-raised), and others contain longer discussions. Some issues may be ACCEPTED and perhaps cause changes or improved explanations in the spec.

IMPORTANT: Please read the hCalendar FAQ and the hCalendar resolved issues before giving any feedback or raising any issues as your feedback/issues may already be resolved/answered.

Submitted issues may (and probably will) be edited and rewritten for better terseness, clarity, calmness, rationality, and as neutral a point of view as possible. Write your issues well. — Tantek

  • non-ending events. How to deal with events that do not end, or even as such occur, just "applied" to a person. Such as in hResume, an award, under experience, would use hCalendar. it does not have an end nor does it continue, I am awarded a certain status and now have that status or recognition of ability. It is awarded on a certain date but it does not end, I do not lose ability, but nor does the awarding continue, I am not re-awarded every single day, so the solution of "to present" for an ongoing event etc, is not really suitable.

Some new way to do this could be added to hCal that is not linked to vCal so that online extractors of hCal (and not vCal) would not automatically represent events with no end date as ending "present" (as with madgex hres to word) unless otherwise specified that this is intended.


Consider using this format (copy and paste this to the end of the list to add your issues; replace ~~~ with an external link if preferred) to report issues or feedback, so that issues can show up in hAtom subscriptions of this issues page. If open issues lack this markup, please add it.

Please post one issue per entry, to make them easier to manage. Avoid combining multiple issues into single reports, as this can confuse or muddle feedback, and puts a burden of separating the discrete issues onto someone else who 1. may not have the time, and 2. may not understand the issue in the same way as the original reporter.
