Currently, if I have a repeated task such as

* NEXT [#B] water plants
SCHEDULED: <2008-06-16 Mon 10:30-10:45 .+1w>

then iCal export includes something like this in the VEVENT:


For most repeated tasks, this is a perfectly sensible default.
However, for a task of this nature, I only want to see the next
occurrence show up in my calendar client - any more just clutters up
the monthly view.  So I would suggest that there should be an option
to control whether the repeated occurrences get exported. Even better
if you could limit this to only apply to certain types of repeat;
maybe having it only apply to the 'battery charging' type of renewable
events denoted by '.+' would make a sensible default?

I don't think the icalendar format does support repeated entries for a
limited time interval, does it?

Quite possibly not - however this need not get in the way of my
suggestion, which was simply to export the repeated event as a one-off
where appropriate.  Does that make sense?

Not really, to be honest. I am having trouble to envision a good definitions of when a repeated event is a repeated one and when not.
