Send a calendar event

There are many different types of calendar events, distinguished by the method:

PUBLISH:when you just want to inform people of an event
REQUEST:when you require a response

example:

info = dict(
   location='My location',
   dtstart=datetime(2008, 6, 2, 15, 30),
   dtend=datetime(2008, 6, 2, 24, 00),
   organizer=('adentella@thundersystems.it', 'Sandro Dentella')
)

msg = EmailMessageCalendar(title, summary, from_email, recipient_list)
event = msg.get_event(info)
msg.set_attendee(event, email2, full_name) # Required for ``REQUEST``
msg.attach_calendar(event, 'PUBLISH')
msg.send()
