Obtain list of open Github issues for your projects as an iCalendar feed of VTODO items.
Would you like to see native iCalendar support in Github?
Although it is not hard to download this script and run it yourself, you may prefer to connect directly to https://api.github.com with your favourite iCalendar client.
