Thanks to @rianjs for taking this on! As per his recent (July 1st, 2016) email to me:


About 6 weeks ago, I was able to track down Doug Day, the original author of dday.ical. (It wasn't easy.) He relinquished the copyright, and gave me permission to open source dday.ical under a new name, and under a permissive license.

I renamed it to, and licensed it under the MIT license:

I also wrote up a short history which explains the relationship of to dday.ical, and created a contributors page where you and Doug are both listed. (If you hadn't saved dday.ical from the dustbin of sourceforge history, we'd be screwed.)

I did this because I wanted to use dday.ical in production without concerns about licensing or copyright, and I wanted my bugfixes and performance enhancements to be available to everyone. The performance enhancements are significant: on my machine,'s unit test suite completes in about 3.5 seconds. In dday.ical, it completes in about 17 seconds. (The unit tests are identical; there's no number games here.)

I wanted this newer, better version, unencumbered by ambiguous licensing out in the world for people to use. To that end, I published a nuget package:

If I have time this afternoon, I'm going to broaden the availability to .NET 3.5 and .NET Core.

Would you mind committing a delete of the dday.ical repo, and pointing people to in the I intend to maintain the library for the long-term, including the nuget package. I'm happy to give you commit rights if you wish.

Regards, Rian
