[horde] RRULE in .ics file contains wrong timestamp in field UNTIL

during debugging CalDAV sync problems for recurring events i found the  
following bug.

The generated .ics file for recurring events contains several RRULE entries.
Many of those RRULE entries contain a field UNTIL with a timestamp.
This timestamp should be in the format:
     YYYYMMDDTHHMMSSZ but in the .ics file it is

After digging in the code i found the following 3 times in  

                     $until = ';UNTIL=' . $last->format('Ymd\THIs') . 'Z';

This is obviously wrong as "I" (capital i) means "Whether or not the  
date is in daylight saving time" and is set to "1 if Daylight Saving  
Time, 0 otherwise". (out of the php documentation)

I changed the 3 lines in the code to this:

                     $until = ';UNTIL=' . $last->format('Ymd\THis') . 'Z';

and everything is working now. CalDAV syncing is working and .ics  
export shows the correct timestamp.
Only for clarification: "i" means "Minutes with leading zeros" and is  
set to "00 to 59". (out of the php documentation)

A complete patch for "framework/Timezone/lib/Horde/Timezone/Rule.php"  
is attached.

It would be nice if someone could take a look at it and commits the patch.

Kind regards
