Thunderbird has its Events, i.e. to-do list items. macOS has Reminders Reminders[1], i.e. its form of to-do list items. It seems that while the macOS Reminders app only operates on reminders which are synced with the Apple iCloud service, there is nevertheless a repository of events/reminders local to the Mac, and it is managed via the EventKit[2] API.

Can Thunderbird for macOS sync its collection of Events with the macOS collection of Reminders, perhaps by calling EventKit?

My use case is that I have a set of events which I curated on a previous version of macOS, using the previous Reminders app. When I migrated to macOS 12 Monterey, the new Reminders app refused to show me my event data unless I synced it with iCloud. I do not want to put this data on anyone's cloud. However, macOS will show me notifications for some of my events. That is evidence that the event data remains locally. I would be happy to use Thunderbird as the front end to curate this local event data. I have just migrated to Thunderbird 115, starting with 115.5.1 on macOS 12.7.1 Monterey.
