Events with an "On Event" reminder never get a notification

Bug Description

Tested with calendar-app 0.4.600 on mako vivid r163.

To reproduce, use calendar-app to create an event with a reminder set to trigger "On Event", then view the ical file in ~/.local/share/evolution/calendar/system/calendar.ics.

calendar-app generates valarms that have an action property, and that's all good. But as per the spec, the valarm also needs a trigger property. Without it, the reminder will never get triggered.

This is currently being masked by indicator-datetime's bug #1419001: it's currently ignoring the trigger property and is unconditionally notifying at the event start time. The datetime fix should be landing soon, which will uncover this missing trigger bug as a side-effect.

I'm not sure if this is being caused in calendar-app or in qtorganizer5-eds.
