Comment (by brian.andrew@…):

 The last "stable" (2.1) release is 15 months old and didn't properly
 function for my Google Apps instances, had issues with anything that
 forced SSL (even with https parameter set), and lacks support for
 importing ics files.  The current development snapshot has been in the
 repository for 5 months and there is no indication of an impending point
 based release (other then the update to the version at
 .)  The author asked on a reported issue why people don't just use the
 data in git (https://github.com/insanum/gcalcli/issues/29), made a vague
 comment that may indicate willingness to tag a point release, but no tag
 has actually been made.  That was a month ago.  I figured other people may
 be interested in a port that actually worked so hence my patch.

 Not sure what you meant by "You can override the values set by the
 portgroup."  I saw no need to override any of the values, using epoch
 seemed to be the appropriate method for controlling whether an updated was
 needed.  If a point release is a must, it would be fairly trivial to fork
 the project and tag a release myself, but I thought it best to leave
 everything pointed at the original author's repository.
