Hi Philipp,

thanks a lot for this great summary. I am wondering: Would you like, after digesting the changes in the forthcoming 4.66, to make this into a FAQ entry?

1. Create an org-file with your appointments and todos.
HINT 1: It seems that there has to be a first headline, when exporting to an .ics-file, because if the first line is a todo it will not get exported correctly.

Fixed in 4.66

HINT 2:         Todos without a deadline will not be exported!

you need:

     (setq org-icalendar-include-todo t)

TODO's with a deadline are exported as calendar entries (VEVENT),
not at all as TODO items (VTODO).  With the above setting, you will
get them as VTODO, so they will (for example in iCal) show up in
the TODO list, not in the calendar itself.

HINT 3: it doesn't matter if a todo is marked done!

in 4.66, you can get the DONE ones as well with:

      (setq org-icalendar-include-todo 'all)

MY QUESTIONS regarding the topig org-mode and .ics/iCal:
- How can I export TODOS with missing Deadlines?

See above

- How can I export TODOS that are marked DONE?

See above

- More detailed instructions for syncing todos/appointments between .ics files (iCal) and emacs org-mode

From iCalendar to org-mode, this will remain difficult until someone has
a brilliant idea.  I don't.

- Carsten
