Whoops, sorry. I have made a mistake; I placed the CATEGORIES:Holiday
*after* the END:VEVENT token. This now works fine :)

awk '{if ($0 == "END:VEVENT") {print "CATEGORIES:Holiday";} print $0;} \

Can Evolution (v1.0.8) assign a category to any non categorised events
(without having to manually edit the imported iCal file)?

no, you can't

 I see from
Apple's original iCal file that it contains extra headers:
Can these be used automatically assign categories when importing a iCal

well, those properties, AFAIK, do not belong to the iCalendar RFC, so
unless we do a special case for broken Apple's iCal files, we won't
support it.

So, the correct fix for this would be to fix Apple's iCal so that it
generates correct VEVENT's. That is, the categories have to be specified
per VEVENT, not at the top of the calendar file with a non-standard
