for whatever reasons the icalendar feed (and the RSS feed, for that matter), do not contain any information about the category of an event.

i'd like to automatically parse the calendar feed and trigger some events based on the categories of the current event.

however, i haven't found any stable way yet, to extract the categories of an event from what is provided to the user (the only thing i've found is that the category name will be part of the HTML of a specific event - but without any special formatting, so I don't think it is sane to build on that).

(it also seems that an event can only be in a single category sad)

This seems like a (reasonable) cry for help cool

The CSV export, iCal Export, and RSS exports will now contain the category name. The CSV export also contains a unique category Id.
