iCal feed to include "new" (unaccepted) game assignments as "tentative"

Currently, "new" (unaccepted) game assignments don't show up in the iCal feed for an official. This feature request is for such games (assignor has given them to the official, but the official has not accepted or declined them) to be published in the official's iCal feed as an event with a "tentative" status[1]. Then when the event is accepted the status changes to "confirmed" and if declined the event is removed from the feed.

 

Business Impact:  By not seeing proposed game assignments in the calendar feed for an official it makes it more difficult for them to determine if they should accept or decline the assignment.  If the iCal feed included those games with the "tentative" event status, the game official could look into their calendar application and and see any potential conflicts with the assignment.
