Mark Nottingham has had it with the lack of a formal RFC for RSS, and says Let’s try this, and submits an IETF Internet Draft on RSS2.0.
Jï¿½rgen Thelin fully supports the proposal, while Sam Ruby is about as ambivalent as Dave Winer on this one. Dave Winer notes the news by pointing to an old DaveNet-piece called Submission, where he says Submission is not my nature.
So, there we are. I certainly think having a formal RFC is progress, and an important step ahead in terms of standardisation.
The new RSS overlords, Don Box and Sam Ruby, wants to namespace-qualify RSS elements with a well-known namespace. Chances are, I think, that they’ll get their wish fullfilled, eventually.
I have changed the default feeds from GotzeLinked to RSS 2.0 using xhtml:body.
See my other reply.
I am presently doing a project on “XML and its application in eGovernance”.
I want informations regarding “Available XML Standards for eGovernance”.
It would be a great help if you could provide some assistance.
