I'd say you're doing an awesome work!
Do you think I could use your work to improve libical regarding to timezone
We are using libical in Evolution (and its friends) and, in evolution-ews,
would be nice if we can have this mapping working properly.
Another question is ... do you think cldr could replace libical? This is
the first time I heard about the project ...

I am not able to open this link, unfortunately.

ps: Yoshito, please, remember me to pay you a beer whenever we meet in
