Hi list,

I have several cases of repeating / recurring events, such as a
monthly business networking lunch, where the only data elements which
change from event to event are the dates.

It appears to me that schema.org doesn't yet address this particular use case?

The current solution appears to be to repeat each event, including the
duplication of each data element.  I'm thinking of using the search
engine frowned-upon <meta> tags to hide the repeated data in
successive event dates.

Insights and alternatives from the trenches would be welcome.

In a similar vein, the schema.org documentation is silent on how to
markup multiple events which occur at the same venue.  There is an
example specific to Google:
but it would be nice to see this officially documented for schema.org
AND clarity provided regarding the order of the data - i.e. the
possibility to list each event occurrence then the venue, i.e. putting
the event where it belongs, before the venue.
