Ability of export list of events as RSS

Hi,

Please add the ability to automatically export/share list of events. For example: we have list of scheduled tango events happening all around the year; and there's a dancer in Italy who creates a mobile app that displays tango events in the world. At the moment, we have to manually enter each events into the mobile-app system or through fb, because there's no ability to export the event/share list of events directly from timely calendar system. Can't use .ICS as ICS is not a content feed protocol/system.

This feature can definitely can be expanded into feeding the list to a tv-based system, or integrated/feed to other event aggregator site, or automatically export/feed the list of events into facebook/facebook group list of events.

Thanks.

    Hello, we currently offer XML export and ICS feed export. We don't have any other specific formats planned, but please let us know what formats would fit your needs.

    Hi Aristotel, I'm thinking sppecificly of RSS feed. Especially because when I tried to export the calendar to both other calendar as well as to XML it came out with list of images, rather than list of events. - I do realise that RSS feed is a specific form of XML list. - Alex

    xml export is not working for feedburner.com ( wanted to convert it to rss 2.0)

     

     

    The requested URL draft-ietf-calsch-many-xcal-01.txt was not found on this server.

    This draft has expired.

     

    This feed does not validate.

    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendation.
