I did get contacts to import fine. Calendar, however, gave me problems.

First, it gave an error about STATUS not being valid. Checking my exported 
vcalout.vcs file (which I got when exporting from Kontact in calendar), I saw 
that this file also contained todos (which has a STATUS field), which GPE's 
calendar probably doesn't like.

So, I removed those, and tried again, wich a much reduced file. Now it says 
the file has a syntax error. I've attached it, for your reference.

Is syncing coming?
