Custom Repeat Feature Too Simple Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been waiting for something like Lightning add-on to Thunderbird so I can finally ditch Outlook. 0.7 is close - but still not quite. The problem is that the Custom Repeat feature is way too simplistic. It would be nice if our life is as simple as "Every Weekday at 2:00PM go pick up your kid". As we all know, that's not how things work. It's more like:

Pickup you kid every weekday at 2:00PM except Thursday which is a short day and they get off at 1:30PM, and only if it's not a holiday, nor during quarter breaks which occurs between xxx and xxx, unless it's parent conference week which means everyday is minimum day and they got off at 12:30PM except Thursday because that's a short day already, not a minimum day....

Would be nice if that can be handled by Lightning of course but short of that, at least match what Outlook is doing: Do this on every weekday except ...

Other than that, the rest of Lightning looks very promising....

Thanks to all the developers.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7).
