A Modest RSS Proposal

The RSS Advisory Board has completed their task and are ready to have everyone take a look at their latest revised standard.
bq.It also has been through a thorough and open review process that included 11 revisions to the draft and 13 revisions to a companion document still under development, the RSS Profile. I proposed today that the RSS Advisory Board adopt the draft as version 2.0.9 of the RSS 2.0 specification. – “Rogers Cadenhead(Proposal: Revise the RSS 2.0 Specification)”:http://www.cadenhead.org/workbench/news/3034/proposal-revise-rss-20-specification It certainly has been a “long time in coming(Very quietly earlier this morning)”:http://www.scripting.com/2002/09/18.html#When:8:25:22AM. But hopefully a properly structured and thoroughly discussed “RSS specification(RSS 2.0 Specification)”:http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification will be just what RSS needs to become useful again. In the meantime, though, I am going to stick with “Atom(The Atom Syndication Format)”:http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/atom-format-spec.php.
