There are some holidays in Ireland which occur on the date in question ( e.g. May 1st ) or if that day is on a weekend, then the holiday is actually moved to the following Monday. I could find no way to actually describe this with the syntax in KOrganizer holiday file.
The same seems to be the case for UK holidays (English & Welsh holidays file).
*** Bug 65865 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
SVN commit 549721 by kainhofe:
The holiday library now also supports
-) Multiple holidays on the same date (e.g. start of summer time and easter
on the same day, etc.)
-) conditional shifting of holidays (e.g. if a holiday occurs on a saturday
or sunday, it is actually celebrated on the following monday). Example:
small "May holiday" weekend on 1.5. shift to monday if saturday || sunday
The holiday data files still need to be adapted wherever such a system
applies (UK, Wales, Ireland are known from bug reports, but I don't
know which holidays are really affected).
It's incredible, how simple it is to hack these lex/yacc parsers (which had the fame that nobody in kde would understand them), once you take the ten minutes to print out a yacc tutorial and the 45 minutes to look at the code (and then the ~2 hours to fix the inadvertant bugs in the C code that come through the ancient pointer-increasing in C to walk through a list, when you are used to Qt-style list iterators ;-) )
M +1 -1 Makefile.am
M +33 -11 kholidays.cpp
M +12 -4 kholidays.h
M +162 -106 parseholiday.y
M +3 -0 scanholiday.lex
Reassigning all KOrganizer bug reports and wishes to the newly created
korganizer-devel mailing list.
I'd say it's safe to close this bug, it's been fixed for 3.5 years now, and the data files have long been updated!
