Feed History -03
Draft -03 of Feed History: Enabling Stateful Syndication is now available. Significant changes include:
- Added fh:archive element, to indicate that an entry is an archive
- Allow subscription feed to omit fh:stateful if fh:prev is present
- Clarified that fh doesn’t add ordering semantics, just allows you to reconstruct state
- Cleaned up text, fixed examples, general standards hygiene
See this site’s feed for an example. There’s going to be at least one more draft, as I neglected to acknowledge people who have made suggestions and otherwise helped so far. Sorry!
Also, you might notice that the namespace URI is in
purl.org/syndication. I registered this PURL namespace for the benefit of format-neutral syndication extensions; i.e., those that will work equally well in all versions of RSS as well as Atom. There are already a couple of others besides feed history in there; I’d be happy to delegate sub-domains to other extensions that share this goal.
