As a Lightning user I often wish that all events would arrive at my
Inbox as invitations in the iCalendar format. This way I could just
click the accept button and it would be added to my calendar. But they
don't. Often people just write you a text-based email when they want
to invite you somewhere. So you right-click the email, choose convert
to event and a new event dialog opens with start date set to next full
hour. Not quite correct unless you're really lucky.

This is why I'm working on an extension to Lightning which would fill
in dates and times automatically from email content. The basic idea is
that localizers can define most common ways dates and times are
referred to in their language similarly to how they localize Lightning
itself. Using these patterns event dialog can be much smarter about
setting start and end times and in most cases you wouldn't need to
correct them at all.

Since Lightning is localized into 38 languages and language variants I
need your help. If you fluently speak a language other than English
and would be willing to spend some time to localize the patterns and
test this prototype on your emails then please drop me an email. Do so
even if you speak only English as you can still help with testing.
Feedback on when it guesses correctly and when not is crucial to
improving the extension. What works great in English may not work well
in your language and of course everyone's email is different too. With
your feedback I can improve my extension so that this functionality
can be included into Lightning later on (the curious can follow bug
403222 where more technical information will be posted).
