This is a fascinating discussion. I am also using redEvent v2, after originally using EventList. If a way to migrate from redEvent to JEM is possible in the future, I would be very interested in jumping.
redEvent does offer a CSV export, with the option to filter by event category, and venue. I can't share an export file, but I have attached the column labels to give an indication of the type of data exported.
My main motivation is just to keep my events database on an active software platform, and to not let it become outdated and unwise to keep online, especially now Joomla 2.5 is EOL.
- it seems that they removed the forum so not sure what's happening there.
- the update link is not working anymore
- the code in the files is way outdated (in the J2.5 version i've)
so would say it probably is..
Did have a quick look, but without any data it's hard to compare.
it is.. to compare it would be good to have the component, install some sample data and then an export.
but diving into it and also get to know the mapping of all the fields and how to insert it in JEM will take a lot of time.
pff, something else that can be done is that you try to make the RED component compatible with Joomla 3 so the data can be moved over to Joomla 3.. but that will be complex and take a lot of time.
another complication will be that the component "red_form" is needed before you can use "red_event" properly, also here it will be a matter of finding out how things are integrated.
so would say that the integration is not going to happen at short notice and maybe not event this year.
you could try to edit the exported csv to the data that can be imported by JEM and then try to import it in JEM
