Python libraries for iCalendar, which one to use?

I am about to try writing a little Python utility to extract some data
from an iCalendar file. A quick Google search turns up two possible
libraries to use - vobject and "iCalendar package for Python".

First question - have I missed any other (better?) ones?

Second question - how do I choose which to use. Do I just use the
obvious criteria like recent activity, has the methods I want etc. or
is there some place that assigns official/respectability to a library?

Several people asked me for the following HOWTO, so I decided to post it here (though it is still very 'alpha' and might contain many (?) mistakes; didn't test what I wrote, but wrote it - more or less - during my own installation of Python 2.3 on Fedora Core 1 Linux for a friend of mine). Anyway, HTH, L.

Hello all, On my webpage http://www.tdf.boers.sohosted.com/uciprotouri/2006i/download2006i.aspx I offer an iCalendar file with the FIFA wk 2006 match schedule so my visitors can import it easily in Outlook. When you import the file in Outlook all matches are shown correct. The problem is that when you synchronize Outlook with a PDA alle matches are shown as a all day event and they are displayed the day following

iCalendar is a standard (RFC 2445) for calendar data exchange. I plan to transfer data from iCalendar files (extension .ics), to a linked Outlook calendar table. While Outlook (2002) has an import strand for this, it does not seem to work with the format I shall be importing. iCalendar files are not comma delimited files. My first inclination is to open the iCalendar file with low level DOS commands, to parse its contents with Regular...

Hello, I'm looking for some C# code that loads a iCalendar file from a wesbite, loops through the .ics file and extracts the event details from each event in the file. I don't want to use aspose.icalendar or another one of the popular packages. My ultimate goal is take the iCal data and import into a SQL Server database. I can handle the import to the database but I'm having trouble reading the iCalendar files from external website. I've...

I am trying to write a light iCalendar server. I have no problem serving iCalendar data, which is just printing the right format with the right headers. The data comes from a database. However, I have no idea how I can receive and process an iCalendar request, as regards adding a new event. Eventually I want to parse the request and add it to the database. I am using Thunderbird with the Lightning Extension. I have connected it
