parallel world discussion on the same issues has been happening on
They are hashing out the details of using “feed:”, and wondering how
to build momentum.
There are many unsolved and half-solved problems in aggregation
software. And at least there’s no one place to find the consensus, or
pros and cons on each issue. Examples..
: auto-discovery formats
: methods for publishing blogrolls and subscription lists, and
interchanging them among aggregation tools
: aggregation subscription methods
: methods of passing “read articles” among multiple aggregators
: rpc api’s for aggregators
: update frequency, and methods of update notification
: standards for handling weblog comment aggregation
and many many more.
These issues definitely deserve there own space, not as a subset of
the Atom Wiki. Is a Wiki appropriate? Will people take part? Is there
someone to step in and devote time to herding the cats :)?
