      The trouble was discovered today by unit tests after moodle.org added Ukraine moot with borked UTF8 encoding.

      There was 1 failure:

      1) core_calendar_lib_testcase::test_calendar_cron_working_url
      Failed asserting that 'Updating calendar subscriptions:
      ... started 16:38:36. Current memory use 51.3MB.

      ' matches PCRE pattern "/Events imported: .* Events updated:/".


      To re-run:
      vendor/bin/phpunit --colors core_calendar_lib_testcase calendar/tests/lib_test.php

      Solution is to use in calendar_add_icalendar_event()

      $description = preg_replace('/\s+/u', ' ', $description);

      instead of

      $description = preg_replace('/\s+/', ' ', $description);

      which breaks UTF-8

      Also the sloppy test should be fixed to use the exttests repository instead of live moodle.org server
