Hi folks,

People who have worked on W3C groups in IRC might know RRSAgent [1], a bot
that logs IRC and has a function to record action items.

I have been working on some tools [2] to convert these to iCal todo items - I
use cwm, and have a couple of shell scripts that help with the work.

I can collect the things that RRSAGent stores (some of them are public [3,4]
- I have documented a bit and will add more examples to play with), and
convert them to the RDFiCal schema. I put in a hack to ensure that it adds a
DTSTART - this is supposedly optional, but Apple's iCal needed it before it
would accept my todo. I don't think that's a big deal from my perspective.

The stuff I have done relies on cwm to work, and having a unix-type shell
helps. But it's RDF - feel free to play in other tools and say "hey, you
didn't model FOO nicely. The documentation is a bit messy, and comments or
criticisms are welcome.

      to tell it to record action items)
