Right now, there are two problems with the Fridge calendar: (1) there
is no way to create repeating events; (2) it doesn't create a valid
iCal feed that Google calendar can use.

So, we migrated all the events to a Google calendar and tried
replacing the feed to ubottu in #ubuntu-meeting. It turns out that
ubottu can't handle repeating events. The module that parses the feed
needs some additional work.

The whole issue is being looked into. Unfortunately, there is no ETA.
