    initial v1  
    1 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 https://github.com/insanum/gcalcli/commit/1a6fc96b03d0d137ca63bd677e677820caff0c90 .)  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.

    33Not 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.
