Calendar 1.0.4a "Add to Calendar" .ics export file missing RRULE for recurring events

When using the "Add to Calendar" button to generate .ics export file for a recurring event, the .ics file contents are incorrect - the event runs from it's recurrance start date through to its end date.

An RRULE line is missing and needed to define the recurrence criteria. Refer 3.8.5.3. Recurrence Rule | iCalendar (RFC 5545) | RFC Specifications for details and examples. iCalendar Validator can be used for testing the fix :)

Since you're looking at the ICS code, https://nixfifty.com/threads/add-to-calendar-ics-export-filename.7305/ is a suggesstion for the .ics filename :)

@NixFifty any particular reason there's no fix for this one in v1.5? It makes ics on recurring events unusable without this, which incurs a reduced level of end user trust in all ics exports.

@NixFifty could you give some feedback please? Is there an issue with a fix for this?
Sorry, thought I’d replied. There’s some under the hood changes coming for recurring events and RSVPs so it’ll be fixed with those in 1.0.6.
