I was wondering if there is anybody working on an iCal connector for
Mylyn or if somebody is interessted in developing such a connector?
I think this would be a great extension. Supporting such a standard will
help to spread the use of Mylar and integrators don't need to implement
their own connectors. Instead their can rely on a standardized interface
that is usable by many other tools like Thunderbird, Sunbird, Apples
iCal & Mail tools or even Microsoft Outlook in its newest version.

While we have discussed this on occasion, we do not have a bug report
for such a connector so could you please file one?
One challenge is that the VTODO
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar#To-do_.28VTODO.29) format used
by some of these applications is quite limited in contrast with what we
consider required for task-focused work. But that's not to say that
having some kind of mechanism for either import/export or connections to
iCalendar based task management systems won't be useful. One rquest
that's related is CSV-based import/storage:
193439: [connector] CSV task storage or import
The other thing that we have been discussing is standardizing on an XML
format for repository tasks, which would provide both extensibility and
the lowest-common-denominator of attributes that Mylyn relies on for
task repository connectors.

I see that there hasn't been much progress on this topic. However I thought there might be some interest in the work that CalConnect is doing to extend the the iCalendar VTODO standard to better support tasks:|
See the last entry on VTODO
VTODO - "Extend the functionality of VTODOs to support needs such as project management, smart power grids and business task scheduling"
The VTODO component of iCalendar must be extended to offer functionality for new use cases such as the smart grid, project management, and business task task scheduling, in a way that allow a calendaring system to manage the data and calendaring clients to display and change it. The VTODO Ad Hoc committee is reviewing existing work in areas such as project managment, WS Human Task, and smart grid energy management, to recommend at CalConnect XXVI in January 2013 the areas of extension needed and the way forward, such as a new Technical Committee.
