Corrupt MDaemon meetings in a migration

We found (in the wild) conditions where MDaemon meetings were corrupt, in this case missing their Organizers or Planners.

What to do?  They're corrupt and may or may not display in an MDaemon client -- but they are in the data.

Under our usual rubric of "it is better to recover everything we can and let the user delete if they do not want it -- because it is harder to re-create something not there than delete something that is" we recover the meeting and tag it with the category "Meetings_MissingOrganizer"

So you could search for those in Outlook post-migration and make decisions about them.
