Events with Date parameters failing

Subject: [RiCal] Setting dtstart to a date
To: RiCal rical_gem@googlegroups.com

I am trying to set the dtstart value of an Event to a Date, not a date
time. This is to create a 'All Day' event so I don't want the time

However when I try to do this I get this error:

NoMethodError (undefined method for_parent' for 2009/9/30 0:0:0<br/> 0:RiCal::FastDateTime):<br/>    /vendor/gems/ri_cal-0.8.4/lib/ri_cal/property_value/date.rb:131:in<br/>send'    /vendor/gems/ri_cal-0.8.4/lib/ri_cal/property_value/date.rb:131:in
method_missing'    /vendor/gems/ri_cal-0.8.4/lib/ri_cal/properties/event.rb:123:in<br/>dtstart_property='    /vendor/gems/ri_cal-0.8.4/lib/ri_cal/properties/event.rb:128:in
dtstart='    /vendor/gems/ri_cal-0.8.4/lib/ri_cal/component.rb:36:insend'
method_missing'    /lib/workbooks/ui/renderers/ics/ics_renderer.rb:51:instart_tree'

I am passing in a ruby Date object, obtained from a Rails model using

Should I be passing in something different to set a Date value, or is
there a bug here? I notice PropertyValue::DateTime has a 'for_parent'
method, but FastDateTime doesn't?

    I've already fixed this and pushed version 0.8.5 to github.

    Unfortunately github has disabled gem building after their move from Engine Yard to Rackspace this past weekend, so it's not available as a gem there. I just released it on rubyforge, so for the time being rubyforge gems are actually ahead of github
