Comment 1 Filipe Rosset 2018-10-27 17:16:40 UTC
please update to 0.9.10 (Support for python-dateutil 2.7)

Comment 2 Ulf Volmer 2018-11-08 08:15:16 UTC
because the is no activity in this report, as workaround i have edited /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/khal-0.9.9-py3.7.egg-info/requires.txt which solves the issue for me.

Comment 3 Timothée Floure 2018-11-29 18:45:00 UTC
I would gladly take over this package as co-maintainer if the current owners do not have enough time to update it :-)

Comment 4 Timothée Floure 2018-12-10 08:47:34 UTC
I submitted a PR bumping khal to 0.9.10 [0], fixing the crash.
